Weekend Herald - - TRUE COMMERCIAL - Colin Tay­lor

A sub­stan­tial 5.5ha free­hold de­vel­op­ment land pack­age in Waiuku town cen­tre is be­ing of­fered for sale ‘ as is’ only a short walk to the Waiuku golf course and squash club.

“This is an ex­cel­lent de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­nity in an up and com­ing area that could suit a po­ten­tial com­mer­cial project like a re­tire­ment vil­lage, on ob­tain­ing the proper re­source con­sent,” says JLL agent Kurt Rains.

The land pack­age, made up of five ti­tles, in­clud­ing 53, 53A, 61, 71 Kitch­ener Rd and 25 Fern­leigh Av­enue, is be­ing mar­keted by Rains through an ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est cam­paign clos­ing at 4pm on Wed­nes­day June 14.

“The land for sale is zoned Mixed Hous­ing Sub­ur­ban un­der Auck­land’s Uni­tary Plan which gen­er­ally al­lows for two- storey dwellings in a range of forms, in­clud­ing de­tached and ter­raced houses,” says Rains.

“The main ac­cess way will be off Fern­leigh Av­enue and un­der its zon­ing, the site could also be di­vided into around 94 lots at 400sqm each.”

He says Waiuku is a coun­try town that is rapidly be­com­ing part of Auck­land city. “Many Auck­lan­ders, and par­tic­u­larly re­tired per­sons, are now trad­ing the stresses of city liv­ing for Waiuku’s scenic ru­ral sur­round­ings and a laid­back life­style. This site has the ad­van­tage of be­ing in the town cen­tre but within 10 min­utes’ drive to the coast and stun­ning Kar­i­o­tahi Beach. It i s also close to all of the ameni­ties in Waiuku town­ship in­clud­ing Franklin Memo­rial Hospi­tal, a New World su­per­mar­ket, a Unichem phar­macy and Waiuku Col­lege.”

Rains says Waiuku is 21km from Pukekohe, 45km from Manukau City Cen­tre and about 60km south­west of Auck­land’s CBD.

“Ac­cord­ing to JLL Re­search and Con­sult­ing; and Sta­tis­tics New Zealand’s high sce­nario fore­casts, the area within a 15km ra­dius to Waiuku is pre­dicted to grow by 60,640 res­i­dents be­tween 2016 and 2043,” he says “This rep­re­sents a rate of 109 per cent com­pared to 61 per cent in the Auck­land re­gion and 40 per cent na­tion­wide over the same pe­riod.

“Over the past three years the me­dian house price in Waiuku rose by 63 per cent — in­creas­ing from $ 359,500 in March 2014 to $ 585,000 in March this year.”

Waiuku is at the south­ern end of the Waiuku River, an es­tu­ar­ial arm of the Manukau Har­bour. The town sup­ports a local farm­ing com­mu­nity and is home to many em­ploy­ees of New Zealand Steel at Glen­brook. Most of the town is within the bound­aries of Auck­land Coun­cil, with the re­main­der com­ing un­der the Waikato Dis­trict Coun­cil.

Rains says Auck­land Trans­port re­cently in­tro­duced t wo new bus ser­vices for Waiuku, which have im­proved ac­cess to and from the town. “These in­cludes a new route be­tween Waiuku and Pukekohe, seven days a week, and a peak week­day ser­vice be­tween Waiuku and Pa­pakura,” he says.
