We've all seen the residental developments around Ormiston and Flat Bush but it's exciting to see the long awaited town centre happening.
Last night we got an update from the various parts of Auckland Council and the developers Todd Property.
Lots happening but a quick summary of the key parts to the project
brand new retail, dining and entertainment shopping centre with 100 new shops including Warehouse, Noel Leemings, New World and Hoyts;
new aquatic and leisure centre complete with 25m pool, spa, children's area and more;
new library and community centre, community will be engaged on the design;
further enhancements to Sir Barry Curtis Park, including walking and cycling connections through the new town centre;
updates to public transport and roads to support new residents, workers and shoppers.
All of this within the next few years! In fact shopping centre will be done by Christmas next year, only 18months away!
Huge thank you to the all the council staff and the developers for making themselves available this evening and especially Howick Local Board for organising it.
