With submissions closing on the 14th Feb. does anyone know the time frame after this.
Is it a set amount of time or does it vary depending on the size/complexity of the project.

I see in the 'Herald' the Auckland City Council is moving to charge inner city apartment developers 'levies' to help pay for rates. This will also have a secondary effect of reducing the small 'chicken coop' apartments.
The charges will reach a maximim of $41,200 for a 3-4 four bedroom apartment, starting at $3400 for a one bedroom apatment.

Developers are already shunning developments, 2000 apartments were built last year and only 150 are planned this year.
One develpoer Robert Holden has shelved plans for more the a 1800 apartment development on Hobson / Nelson Sts.

One property developer I spoke to thinks the council is being very punitive, even some of the councilors are divided over the issue.

A number of property develpopers are writing submissions againt the levies.

Will be interesting if this has an effect on the Elliot proposal.

This article could be in two threads ....

But the Elliot Tower comment is why its here

Dae Ju weighs up costs of Shortland St site
by Tamsyn Parker
Korean property conglomerate Dae Ju has put a planned 35-level residential and retail tower on Auckland’s Shortland St on hold and may look at building an office block instead.

Queen City Law principal Marcus Beveridge, who represents the Dae Ju group of companies, said uncertainty over a hike in developer levies by Auckland City Council had forced a rethink on the Auckland CBD site.

“We are just sort of holding this in abeyance at the moment. It’s very difficult to do a $100 million project without a bit more certainty in terms of costs,” he said.

Dae Ju developer Jae-Ho Huh bought the 2010sq m site for $13.75 million in 2005 from Trans Tasman Properties, which already had plans for a 190-unit residential tower lodged at the council.

Mr Huh decided to continue with the plans but little has happened on the site, which has marked time as a carpark since the Auckland Star building was demolished in 1989.

Mr Beveridge said the firm had sought specialist advice on the development and had recently written to Auckland City Council about its levy proposals.

Auckland City Council indicated it would change its developer contribution policy last year to extend its open space charges to the central business district.

It plans to hold public consultations on the potential changes during April and May before introducing them in July.

The council has proposed increasing the public infrastructure charge from $3132 per residential household unit to about $9000 and is looking at three options for recovering public space land acquisition costs.

Mr Beveridge said the changes could potentially add up to $70,000 a unit to the Shortland St development, which could make an already expensive development unfeasible.

He said many industry commentators thought the development should be an office block rather than retail and residential and did not rule out changing the designs to an office block.

“That’s why we need to get some certainty from council to know what will be feasible. We are all a bit dazed by it at the moment.”



However, Mr Beveridge said any developer levy changes would not halt Dae Ju’s plans for a 67-level retail and residential tower for the corner of Elliot and Victoria streets as the firm expected to be able to recoup developer levy costs through the sales of the apartments.

The plans for the site were notified in January and Dae Ju is working with submitters to resolve issues before taking it back to Auckland City Council for approval in the next few months.

The $300 million Elliot tower would be the largest apartment building in New Zealand.
