This site is surely a prime candidate for development sitting right next to the Grafton Station and just across the road from the new Auckland University campus currently under construction. In addition it is also passed by all the buses that travel along Park Rd. It’s currently owned by Kiwirail and has sat empty since the Grafton station was completed four years ago. Any development would surely be better than just leaving it sitting there to grow weeds. The weeds look especially bad when they’re growing above and hanging over the walls.
It would be great if the station was able to be capped allowing more development as well as better weather protection for those waiting on the platform. The land by itself is about 1,300m² however if the rail line was capped it would deliver up to 3,000m²
