New app tracks Auckland’s many developments

Auckland is undergoing a period of rapid change. For those with premises in the city, it can be difficult to know what’s in store for the empty building next door, or when that construction project up the street is likely to stop making noise. Enter ‘Emerging Auckland’, a searchable app which tracks public and private developments in the central city.

Projects like the City Rail Link and unprecedented demand for accommodation and office space mean Auckland’s city centre is currently dominated by cranes, construction teams and demolition sites. Emerging Auckland reports that between 2020 and 2023, Auckland city will likely include an additional 167,000sqm of commercial office space and around 7,000 new residential apartment units and townhouses, among other developments.

In a searchable Google Maps-style interface, Emerging Auckland gives the name, location, category, status, expected completion date, lead developer, architect and lead construction company for private and civic developments, whether proposed, underway or recently completed.

This means a retailer like Smith & Caughey’s can look up its location on the map, see any development projects nearby, and immediately find out all relevant information for them. In this case, there’s a number of long-completed infrastructure projects, plus the St James Suites (cancelled); the St James Theatre (under construction) and the recently-completed Queens Residences. Slightly further afield, there’s the NDG Tower proposed to begin construction this year.

Each development is documented on Emerging Auckland through its own photo gallery, which is regularly updated once construction is under way.

Emerging Auckland’s coverage extends from the waterfront to approximately Mount Roskill in the south, Remuera in the east and Mount Albert in the west.

Kimberlys will be gone by Sunday

Womenswear company Kimberlys was founded in 1983, but it won’t see out the end of 2017 before folding. It went into receivership in October and as a buyer has failed to come forward, all remaining Kimberlys stores will close on December 17.
