RSA build plans move forward

The Hibiscus Coast Community RSA is drawing up plans for new clubrooms, which it proposes to build on the upper car park at its site in Vipond Road, Whangaparaoa.

Architect Ray Miller has provided some possible layouts, which include cantilevering the building out over the lower car park. However, the resulting building is long and narrow, which could limit the interior layout options.

Currently, Miller Architects is compiling a more comprehensive plan and the RSA is preparing for a pre-resource consent application meeting with Auckland Council.

The RSA plans to sell a larger parcel of land than was previously offered, at 20 Melia Place, and will now also put the adjacent bowling green up for sale. How to market this land is still being decided.
