(update from 3rd April)

Concrete will be poured for the floors of the first two buildings of the Tamahere Village commercial hub this week.

Tony McLauchlan of Foster Develop says that civil works on the site are well under way and he expects the first stage of the village, including the adjoining Piazza and Recreation Reserve to be finished by November 2018.

The commercial hub comprises four blocks.  One block will be tenanted by Tamahere Fine Foods, with the second block tenanted by a medical centre, pharmacy, hair and beauty salon and sushi shop.  

There is still 535 sq m available in this block on the first floor, which will overlook the piazza.

Tenants are still being sought for the other two blocks in the village.  

One block is intended to be focused around hospitality and food, with ideal tenants including a café and gastro pub/restaurant.  

The remaining block is flexible enough to accommodate a wide variety of uses that would service the needs of the local community.

Mr McLauchlan says he is looking forward to progressing the project this year.

“Fosters are excited to be involved in helping Waikato District Council deliver Tamahere Village and believe that it will be a great addition to the Tamahere community,” he said.

Meanwhile Waikato District Council’s Acting General Manager Service Delivery Jacki Remihana confirmed that the contract for the development of the recreation reserve and piazza had been awarded to Foster Construction.

The work includes construction of the playground, shared paths, landscaping, piazza development, cricket pitch, skate park, basketball half-court, wastewater and water systems for future toilet facilities, and provision for carparks and associated bus shelter and furniture.

The sports fields are still about six weeks away from being able to be used as the grass needs a bit more time to establish itself.

But Waikato Lacrosse has booked space for use in May for its secondary schools league.

“After a long period of design work, planning and engagement, this year the community will notice a lot of visible work going on.

“We’re really looking forward to the completion of this project that will meet the recreation needs of the local community and become a quality destination in our district,” said Ms Remihana.
