Projects >Apollo ECE Centre - Albany
Non-disclosed for Apollo Kindergarten
87 Apollo Drive, Mairangi Bay
SIZE / CAPACITY
125 children plus a cafe
Non-notified / Approved
Establish worked with Phil Smith from Collingridge and Smith Architects to obtain a non-complying land use consent from Auckland Council for this new purpose-built ECE centre and cafe that once complete would provide for 125 children and 18 full time staff members.
The reasons for consent included non-compliance with traffic generation, sites works, parking and loading, yard setbacks and landscaping.
Overall, Council agreed with our team that the actual and potential effects resulting from the development would be of an acceptable nature and scale given the sites location on Apollo Drive. This was because the proposed childcare centre had been designed and located in a manner that was respectful to its immediate and wider environments with any adverse effects in terms of parking, loading, and traffic being addressed by suitable allocation and supply of parking both on and off the site along with appropriate relationship of the development with respect to the local road network. Council in their decision also recognised that positive effects would arise in that the service would provide for the local business community and enable the applicant (our client) to provide for their economic wellbeing.
Construction is currently underway with an expected opening date set for early 2018.
