The task ahead was to explore and design an urban development in the silverdale region. In the contents of project one. By using a programme called ArcGIS and ArcMAP each individual in the group chose an area and underlayed the key fundamental layers prior for developing. This development plan needed to have mixed uses and a density level such as high, medium or low depending on what integration was being developed. In this case either residential, commercial, recreational, industrial, etc. Key issues were taken into consideration such as. - - - -

The idea from Project one was a key frame to build upon to create a new development plan. In this case a ‘Sustainable Landscape”.

Silverdale Silverdale is a village approximately 30km north of Auckland city in the North Island of New Zealand. It is located on the north bank of the Weiti River and lies to the west of the Whangaparaoa Peninsula. The former State Highway 1 runs south-west to north-east through the village and is now designated State Highway 17.

Silverdale has been selected as a transforming project under the Rodney district. It is one of many developing areas in Auckland with new residential sections, infrastructure, roading, retail and roading. There is a continuous development of storm water and waste water management along the new sections to create an increase of biodiversity through natural flora and fauna The rural residential surroundings are beginning to intensify to the South West of Silverdale. State highway 17 has a number of recreation activities such as Snow Planet, Aucklands luge and Go Karting and further recreation and ancillary activities to develop in future years to come. Silverdale North (millwater) is in the process of developing an open space, commercial zoning on greenfield land, to increase employment opportunities earthworks have commenced.

The Contents of my selected area lies on a slope, starting from the east and sloping down to the Northern motorway. The area itself contains a few residential housings with farm sheds. In the North East corner Lies King Plant Barn and Gatmans Motors.

Roads

6225 Landscape Architecture

Before any such development starts. Key layers on the landscape need to be brought up as surroundings to development. In this case the main roads such as Eastern Motorway, Hibiscus Coast and Northern Motorway surround my proposed site. The proposed Park n Ride is on Hibiscus Coast road and is a main hub for people coming in and out Silverdale.

Transport Hub The surroundings of my chosen site comprise of Residential and Commercial developments, widening to proposed residential spaces in Millwater and the main Silverdale Township, as well as Whangaparaoa. The proposed Park and Ride development is taking place off the Hibiscus Coast turn off. This will accommodate five hundred carparks and take up an area of five hectares. Similar to the large amount of car parking that Snow planet has and the Auckland Luge in the Recreation area. A few buildings such as Kings Plant Barn and a lawn mowing business are the only main establishments on my selected area and be a start for many more buildings that will link up across the Eastern motoway to the Industrial site.

Significant Vegetation

6225 Landscape Architecture

I have made a ten metre buffer on all the rivers that arise in my area. This allows me to utilise the natural landscape by planting native flora around the rivers and potentially create an ecological friendly environment as well as a sustainable future for Silverdale.

Significant Vegetation is important to note as it attracts native fauna to the bush and trees. Fortunately my site doesn’t contain a large amount of significant land that I cant build on.

Slope

6225 Landscape Architecture

The selected area is made up by a steep gradient level. I chose to use two areas of development. One on a 0 - 35 gradient and the other on a 55 - 85 slope. These areas would be terraced in reality preventing such a steep development. The dark green area is direct planting that links to the significant vegetation.

A few sheds and Residential farm housing are located on the site except for Kings plant plan and a Lawn Mowing business on the North, East corner. North of the site, across from Hibiscus Coast road, has future residential development plans. West of the site includes Snow Planet, Auckland Luge and Auckland Go Karting centre.

Strategy

Model

6225 Landscape Architecture

The chosen area to develop provides a gateway into Silverdale District. By blocking out all significant layers in the landscape such as roads, rivers, significant vegetation, slope and existing buildings it becomes clear what land can be developed. The grey areas in figure one. The aim in Project one was to create a ‘sustainable landscape’ in the Silverdale district. This Strategy continues on into this development by using a number of the existing and proposed landscape. The park n Ride feature provides people of Silverdale to make the most of public transport. This decreases the amount of traffic on the road leading in and out of Silverdale. Rivers are surrounded by Tussock vegetation that lead into the ridge along the Northern Motorway. Restoration ponds are used for storm water and river drainage and creates a brilliant landscape feature

The design itself provides spatial qualities surrounding the building for people to walk and cycle around. The Park/bush allows people of the public to enjoy walks and relax while being in a working environment. The mixed density areas such as Commercial, Retail and Industrial blocks all have advertisement signage on the outside of the building.

Highbrook is one of establishing Business Park developments in New Zealand. It is Surrounded by recreational parklands for all to enjoy, this breathtaking development seamlessly combines businesses and parklands to provide unprecedented facilities and scale, just 15 minutes from the Auckland CBD. http://highbrook.co.nz/ http://www.goodman.com/

Conclusion

THE PARK OF

6225 Landscape Architecture

BUSINESS The new Business Park development provides a gateway into the Silverdale District. The selected 57 hectare area, SW of Silverdale township strives off mixed land use, ranging from Industrial through to recreational activities providing an attractive, ecological scenery for native fauna and flora. A positive future for Silverdale includes a Park n ride. Decreasing the amount of traffic and motor vehicles on the road. Resulting in an increase of public transport through the business park.
