Stardome Observatory & Planetarium

The Stardome Observatory & Planetarium is a public astronomical observatory, situated in Maungakiekie/One Tree Hill Domain in Auckland.

Stardome’s history began in 1948 when the Auckland Astronomical Society began fundraising for a public observatory in Auckland. By 1956 they had significant funds, including a substantial bequest from Mrs Edith Winstone Blackwell for the purchase of a telescope for public use. The Society formed the Auckland Observatory and Planetarium Trust Board to build on these funds and provide for the construction and management of a new observatory.

In 1960 One Tree Hill Borough Council provided a 21-year lease, which has been subsequently extended, for a site in One Tree Hill Domain (which Stardome still occupies), and in March 1967 the Observatory opened.

It is often the case that many properties are not formally advertised, due to the reliance on word-of-mouth for property listings and professional networks.  A commercial real estate salesperson can give you the latest updates on what’s new on the market.

If you don’t have the time, confidence or inclination to take care of the day-to-day management of your commercial investment property, you could pay a property manager to do it for you. This can also be a good option if you partnered with others to buy the property.  Most commercial property agencies have an in-house service or, can recommend a good property manager.

Contact your Commercial Real Estate Broker if you are looking to invest in a commercial property.  As per an Auckland commercial housing market report, the average ROI (return on investment) for commercial properties (excluding property rates, property management fees, and other costs) is between 5 to 5.5 per cent, while the ROI for residential properties is 3 per cent on average
