Panuku Development Auckland and Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board push forward on urban renewal
I have been watching this urban renewal project make its way through the Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board meeting agenda’s for the last six months as the first sod is prepared to be turned in the much-needed project.
From Our Auckland
The Old Papatoetoe mall is about to be modernised to make it safer and easier to get around.
Old Papatoetoe is a growth area, with many more people expected to move in over the next decade. The improved mall will help cater for growth in the area and build the local economy. Current plans for the Auckland Council/Panuku Development Auckland project include:
- better, safer pedestrian connections including links between St George St and reconfiguring the car park accessed from Wallace Road
- the possibility of a medical hub with pharmacy, physiotherapist and doctor
- retaining and celebrating the pohutukawa, puriri and titoki trees, along with the traditional metalwork features in the street furniture and signage
- the use of colour throughout signage and seating that reflects the Papatoetoe crest and incorporates the Papatoetoe motto “Kai Mahi Tahi” (let us pull together).
The development will be done in stages so that the mall remains open throughout construction.
Find out more about Panuku Development Auckland.
Great to see as Old Papatoetoe was a place I visited very frequently as a child in the 90’s and early 00’s.
Panuku are also in the middle of preparing for larger scale urban renewals as well with more on that in December: I Will Be Watching The Auckland Development Closely in Regards to Development Auckland #AKLPols UPDATED
