A quick update on Avondale

After several years of changes around the town centre’s edges, the focus is shifting to the heart of Avondale, with some exciting projects about to start.

There is a lot of activity in Avondale, with significant investment in the area from local and central government, as well as the private sector.

 

At Eke Panuku, we are excited about the benefits for the neighbourhood and are committed to delivering  improvements that will ensure it continues to serve the community for years to come.

After several years of changes around the town centre’s edges, the focus is shifting to the heart of Avondale, with some exciting projects about to start. Here’s a quick update on what’s planned:

 

July 2024 - Deconstruction of 10 Racecourse Parade, Avondale

In July 2024, we’ll begin deconstructing the buildings at 10 Racecourse Parade. These buildings are at the end of their life, and we’re opting for deconstruction instead of demolition to see if any parts can be reused. This step is necessary as the site is earmarked for future redevelopment to provide more housing options right in the centre of Avondale. 

  

November 2024 - Te Hono set to start   

The construction of Avondale’s new library and community hub, Te Hono, is moving forward, with site set-up planned for November 2024.

We continuing to support the Avondale Business Association who are leading the relocation of Dale the spider, giving it a new home and a fresh lease of life.

 

Supporting the town centre with some small projects

We know that construction and change can be disruptive, so we’re planning smaller projects to quickly bring some benefits to the community. Along with our partners, we’re looking to explore the addition of new public toilets, access to interim play areas and improve wayfinding through the town centre. We’ll share more details in the coming months.

These initiatives are all part of our wider plans to revitalise Avondale. By working   closely with Auckland Council whānau, Whau Local Board, Kāinga Ora and other partners, we’re committed to enhancing the town centre with improved housing options, inviting public spaces, and upgraded transport connections.
