Providing a service
Paul Keane

Last week I wrote on retirement villages and the money that is being made by developers at the expense of retirees; the response that I’ve received suggests to me that all is not well in that camp. A review of the process and the financial gains is required.

Retirement village industry in need of a review
Paul Keane

The recent surge of retirement village development throughout the country is hardly surpising; with an ageing population comes a demand for residential retirement facilities. But when is a "profit" fair and reasonable?

Paul Keane

David Jones opened last week on Lambton Quay in Wellington, and at the same time Countdown announced they were to close six supermarkets throughout New Zealand.

So which one had the bigger impact on the market?

Keeping retail fresh in the capital
Paul Keane

This week, David Jones opens its first New Zealand store in Lambton Quay, Wellington. We all know this prime location, the building that previously housed iconic department store Kirkcaldie and Stains.

David Jones will do brilliantly well; it really is a no brainer.

San Diego’s struggles much the same as Auckland’s
John Lenihan

Hello from San Diego, California, a city of 1.5 million; so very like Auckland, but with even more sprawl and lower density. The city’s GDP is much higher than Auckland’s, but interestingly San Diego ranks as the second most unaffordable city in the United States (the infamously unaffordable San Francisco taking the top spot).
