Today marked a significant milestone for Top Harbour Ltd, developer of the largest remaining land holding at Gulf Harbour. Mayor of Auckland Len Brown lent a hand today to assist with pouring the foundation for the first of 1000 new homes to be built at Gulf Harbour.
CEO Sean Pan has brought his family to New Zealand to represent the shareholders and to be part of the project. The shareholders of Top Harbour are diversified property developers that construct and manage large residential, commercial, and retail properties in selected high-growth first-tier and second-tier cities in Mainland China.
Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Pan acknowledged the recent Auckland Housing Accord, and efforts of both Central Government and Auckland Council to address the shortage of housing in Auckland.
Len Brown also spoke applauding the progress made by Top Harbour encouraging the private-public cooperation with developers and Council to speed the delivery of housing throughout Auckland. Making Gulf Harbour more accessible to commuters was another key point made with more ferry services being highlighted as a key strategy for transport to the Peninsula.
Project Consultant Michael Webb-Speight added that providing housing choice is an important part of the Housing Accord strategy. “Fairway Bay will provide a range of builders, prices and housing options to choose from within this first stage. As we work through the later stages of development we will provide both smaller and larger homes as well as town houses, apartments and retirement living options. In this way we will provide widely different products at different price points to our primary buying market; existing home owners primarily from the North Shore and Whangaparaoa peninsula.”
Top Harbour’s intention is to provide a functional community with a wide range of active participants, all of whom will appreciate this special location and the lifestyle it offers.
