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).

Designing the whole experience
Andy Florkowski

I recently spent a weekend in Queenstown with my wife. We had been gifted some experience vouchers for our wedding so it was an opportune time for us to enjoy in some activities that are unique to this great alpine hotspot.

Construction Crunch
John Polkinghorne

I’ve been saying for a while now that the construction sector is under pressure – there are too many people wanting things built, and not enough builders to do the work.

That’s a simplistic view, as construction companies can put in overtime, hire more people from overseas, or look for more efficient ways to build. But we’re certainly at a point where builders are very busy, and where we can’t speed up the rate of building much faster without it causing major cost increases.

Sometimes you have to blow your own trumpet!
Paul Keane

This week, one project in particular is on the cusp of completion and is a good example of our multi-tasked structure. Often what begins as a property matter can evolve into a wider development opportunity that utilizes our expertise in research, design and architecture.
