Tuesday 28 September 2004
Kiwi Income Property Trust got resource consent for the first stage of its $580 million Sylvia Park development at the end of a straightforward 3-hour hearing this afternoon.
By The LandlordThe 3 Auckland City Council commissioners – Cllr Juliet Yates as chairman with local ward councillors Bill Christian & Sheryl McKelvie – made some minor changes to conditions and agreed to make signage the subject of a separate application.
Property trust founder Richard Didsbury told the commissioners the trust had signed a memorandum of understanding with Auckland University of Technology to establish a satellite campus at Sylvia Park, in one of 5 distinct precincts in the 24ha development.
Work on the site will start on Monday 4 October after a Maori blessing at 5am.
Development will be staged through to the end of 2006.
