Countdown Waiata Shores, Takanini, Auckland
We obtained a private plan change for the rezoning of 1.92 hectares of land at 2 Te Napi Drive, Waiata Shores from Residential – Mixed Housing Urban to Business – Local Centre to create the Waiata Shores Local Centre, alongside a non-notified resource consent for the comprehensive development of the new local centre comprising an anchor Countdown supermarket, five retail tenancies, a café, medical hub and commercial office building.
The local centre seeks to provide a diverse wide range of uses to ensure that there is both a variety of services for the existing community and to enable it to operate as a focal point for the residential community.
The approach to site layout has sought to to be legible for all users, with good sightlines, clearly articulated building entrances, and visual connections from within and outside the site. The site planning and layout provides opportunities for residents and visitors to dwell, and provides a focal point for the community with plaza and seating provided.
