Northcote - The Asia Pacific Marketplace
Where International meets Local
Northcote Town Centre is located in the ‘heart’ of the Northcote suburb on the North Shore and is home to some 90 businesses as well as medical practices, community organisations and public facilities. .
The centre has developed a strong niche in recent years as a centre for food and produce, and speciality Asian goods. The centre has attracted many Asian businesses, and these businesses have in turn, attracted a new market of customers to Northcote, and provided the centre with a marketable point of difference.
Northcote Town Centre is well utilised by the Asian community, creating a diverse multi-cultural customer mix in the centre, including a strong Maori and Pacific influence.
The centre is fortunate to have close to 600 carparks which are free for the public to use.
A new redevelopment plan led by Panuku Development Auckland sets out an ambitious vision for a regenerated Northcote anchored on community, culture and business.
One of the Plans four key moves is an exciting vision for the regeneration of the Town Centre, underpinned by urban design and Te Aranga design principles, delivering a lively and welcoming Northcote with community, culture and business at the heart.
It promotes a comprehensive, staged development with new buildings that are fit for their 21st Century business purposes. It aims to build on the best of the key characteristics of the Centre that the community value - pedestrian areas, the elm tree on Pearn Place, the alignments of key streets, a public realm with flexibility to adapt to accommodate large community events and festivals and most importantly its human scale and activity.
The new Northcote will have a greater mix of housing types delivering over 2000 new homes, with up to 750 of these within the Town Centre in apartment blocks up to eight stories tall. It will have a new multi-purpose community facility, which will include a library, connected to a new town square.
There will be a network of pedestrian priority streets and lanes, framed by high quality buildings, with a vibrant mix of uses including community, retail, commercial and residential.
The Benchmark Masterplan includes high quality public spaces for informal gathering, outdoor dining, markets, and larger festivals enabling the community of Northcote to live, linger, work and play in their Town Centre.
