Comments

City Centre Targeted Rate Projects

O’Connell Street Shared Space   

17.     An artwork has been considered for O’Connell Street following completion of the shared space.  The concept is for a suspended artwork attached to buildings on either side of the street.  The owners at 5 and 10 O’Connell St have in principle agreed to host the artwork from their buildings. Both property owners have signed letters of intent, to allow the art works to be attached to their buildings if the outcome of the structural feasibility for attaching the artworks is satisfactory to them.

18.     A structural review of the two buildings to determine the feasibility and costs of attaching the art works to the building is now complete and fabrication costings have been updated. The project team has met with Consents at Auckland Council to review the consenting issues and requirements. The only major consideration arising from the review is the seismic ratings of the buildings.

19.     The project team will be meeting with Auckland Transport with regard to a license to occupy airspace above O’Connell Street as the next step.

20.     In due course the project will also be reviewed in its totality by the Advisory Panel for Art in Public Places.

 

 

Myers Park Upgrade – Stage 2

21.     Following discussions between the Auckland Council Public Arts, Community Services and Community Facilities teams, and following the advice from the Advisory Panel for Art in Public Places, it has been agreed that two to three options will be presented to ACCAB for review and comment.

22.     Representatives from Auckland Council Public Arts, Community Services and Community Facilities will provide a presentation and facilitate a discussion as to the benefits, costs and consequences of each option at the ACCAB meeting.

24.     Additional site investigation for the splash pad construction was carried out and the project will be delivered through a separate procurement process. At this stage there is a short fall in the available budget to deliver the splash pad and options to resolve this are being developed.

55.     A Programme Steering Group is scheduled for the second week in August to ensure that the programme and project stakeholders are updated on and aware of the phasing of all planned and potential projects in the downtown precinct over the next 10 years so that an informed decision can be made to move forward with the Downtown Public Spaces project.

Quay Park

72.     Following a series of workshops with key stakeholders, and consideration of a range of a wide range of development options, there is no clearly preferred solution for Quay Park. 

73.     The current view is that whilst there may be transport funding available in the medium term to progress elements of the scheme, it will be very difficult to construct a sustainable business case to deliver on the development options that offer the best overall outcomes.

74.     The intention is to complete the study by preparing a minute (or letters of support) from the key stakeholder group that records their endorsement of the components of the study that are agreed.  These letters, in conjunction with the report on the study proceedings will be a useful starting point for any future study.

75.     The timeframes for this will be variable but the consultants have prepared a draft report anticipate compiling the letters of endorsement by August 2016.

Precinct Frameworks

76.     Framework documents are underway for key city centre precincts, to collate planning and project information and inform decisions on projects and initiatives.

v.   Victoria Quarter – to commence 2016 (tbc).

vi.  Quay Park  - draft report due August 2016.
