Development partner appointed for Whangaparaoa housing site

McConnell Property has been confirmed as the developer for a new 59-home housing development in an urban area on Whangaparāoa Peninsula, north of Auckland.

A development agreement for the former council-owned site in Link Crescent in Stanmore Bay was signed this week, with construction due to start in the first half of 2016.

As part of the agreement, McConnell Property will buy the site, and the developer is required to complete the subdivision and build houses within an agreed timeframe.

Community involvement key to development  

Former council-controlled organisation Auckland Council Property Limited (now Panuku Development Auckland) has overseen the engagement and go-to-market process, working with the local board to ensure important community outcomes are realised.

Initial plans indicate up to 59 homes with a mix of detached and non-detached two- to four-bedroom townhouses, with a focus on quality, best-practice urban design principles and environmental sustainability.

The two-hectare site will include a landscaped public reserve, a playground and a wetland, as well as storm water infrastructure to improve drainage.
