Key locations in Old Papatoetoe
Initial regeneration plans for Old Papatoetoe focused on a 2.5-hectare block of Auckland Council land. It’s on the southern side of St George Street, between Tavern Lane and Wallace Road, and includes the shopping mall.
The Papatoetoe New World supermarket refurbishment and expansion is another important part of revitalising the space. Foodstuffs North Island Ltd’s purchase of a 3065sqm portion of the council block enabled the company to start carrying out its improvement plans.
Eke Panuku wants to partner with a private developer to build about 80 apartments and terrace houses on the large car park at the back of the mall, next to Tavern Lane.
