It’s full steam ahead for the mixed-use Kaukapakapa Village Centre development, says its exclusive leasing and sales agent, Dave Crow of Century 21 Crow Realty.

Significant work is under way at the northern end of the settlement, just next to the iconic Kaukapakapa Village Hotel, he says.

“Stage One has been delayed somewhat but nonetheless is set to open in September, with the architects delivering a stylish design to reflect the historic rural setting.”

The 14,600sq m development will include shops, an already leased medical centre with pharmacy, commercial offices, apartments and a 530sq m supermarket.

A Gull service station has been leased and is under construction. Foundations and the service station canopy are in place and the fuel tanks are now being installed, says Crow.

“The consent allows for licensed premises such as a cafe, restaurant or bar. There’s also the ability for us to have fewer apartments to make room for a motel which could appeal to a potential operator given the lack of accommodation in the northwest area.”

The leasing has been progressing well, says Crow, with Stage Two now providing the best opportunities to secure a commercial lease or buy an apartment above. The second stage is due for completion in September next year.

Owned by Kaukapakapa Village Centre Company, the development is on SH16 at 1079 Kaipara Coast Highway, Auckland City’s the only alternative route north.

“Kaukapakapa is only 40 minutes from central Auckland and is really growing in popularity. This development will help give the settlement a real heart and ensure Kaukapakapa becomes even more of a destination.”
