We’ve been involved with this transformative project since 2013 when work began on the Downtown Development Project which covers almost two hectares of land and buildings, including HSBC Tower, Jarden House, PwC Tower, AON Centre, One Queen Street (soon to be Deloitte Centre) and Commercial Bay Retail.
Surveying the Downtown Auckland precinct was one of the final hurdles to the planned CRL, with the design of Commercial Bay needing to incorporate the rail link directly underneath.
At the time, we undertook detailed topographical survey of the Downtown shopping centre and surrounding streets to inform the design of the Commercial Bay Retail Centre and towers.
Commercial Bay strata subdivision
The strata subdivision of the Commercial Bay development is one of Aotearoa, New Zealand’s biggest. Five lots are being created by Precinct Properties New Zealand Limited who are splitting Jarden House, PwC Tower, One Queen Street and Commercial Bay retail and carpark areas from the CRL tunnel underneath. To enable the subdivision, our specialist surveyors are having to as-built the Commercial Bay buildings and structures and create strata boundaries around them. Our Auckland Survey Manager, Daryl Murray, says this is something not done very often and is the first time at this scale.
