Success: Nothing satisfies like growing your own herbs. Sat 24 Jan 12:00 - 12:45 Sat 24 Jan 1:00 - 1:45 New name reflects change of direction It’s a new year and a new name for Retail Holdings Limited. In December last year the company rebranded and is now known as Urban Partners. The name change signals the future direction of the company that has a legacy of retail property investment in projects ranging from large shopping centres to boutique and dining entertainment precincts. ‘‘Our name change is a reflection of who we’ve become and where we’re headed,’’ chief executive Rob Marshall says. ‘‘Over time we’ve become much more than a retail property investment company and we want our brand to reflect that. Our name change also signals our future direction as we take on projects that are increasingly unique and diverse.’’ Urban Partners is already well down the path to diversification. In 2012, the company committed to manage, design, construct and fund a $60 million data centre for Spark Digital. Prime Minister John Key opened the state-ofthe art facility in October last year. In Paihia, Urban Partners is working closely with the local council to help it realise its vision for the development of Paihia’s waterfront. Seeing the potential of this historic seaside town, the company acquired some of the key retail properties immediately adjacent to the waterfront, with a view to developing a strong retail offering in the area. ‘‘Our rebrand is not about abandoning our roots in retail but we’re always watching for trends in the marketplace, whether it be in retail, technology or how people spend their leisure time, ’’ Marshall says. The pursuit of wellness is another trend Urban Partners recognised early on. Over the years, the company has acquired strategic assets at Waiwera with a vision of creating a world-class wellness destination with a mix of complementary attractions and accommodation. ‘‘It may sound obvious, but if end users enjoy the experience, the tenants’ businesses will thrive, resulting in quality longterm revenue for the property owner.’’ It’s herbs – straight up By HANNAH MORRIS My nana was a member of a herb society for years and I never really knew what her fortnightly meetings entailed. I guess at 12 years old I thought there was only so much you could know about herbs. Fast-forward 13 years and I’m putting together a herb garden of my own, drowning in a sea of information about herb varieties, potting mixes, planting environments and wishing I had developed an interest for herbs while nana was still around. Growing your own herbs has got to be a better option than splurging out $3 for a wilted bunch of coriander at the supermarket. So my quest: A vertical herb garden. Outside my local fruit shop I heaved a battered pallet box, all the way from the Philippines, into the boot of my wee car. The store owner had been only too happy to let me have one. ‘‘Take as many as you want, we have heaps,’’ he said. Pallet boxes are everywhere these days and used for just about anything. Enter it into Google and you’ll find chairs, tables, bookshelves, planter boxes and more. They’re definitely the cheap option if you’re OK with a little bit of DIY. Helen Ford from the North Shore Herb Society happily offered her thoughts on the concept. ‘‘They’re quite good for people starting out and people with limited space. As long as they get plenty of sunlight,’’ she says. She’s been the president of the society for eight years and knows her NEWS Northland Lifestyle &PropertyReal Estate Guide to Northland Advertising feature Topping up: Fill the top layer with soil and plant an extra row. plants. She says she may have even met my nana at one stage – it’s a small world once you start getting into herbs. So after two trips to Bunnings, a wander around a garden centre and a solid few hours in the garage staplegunning up a storm, I had the canvas for my garden. Once filled with soil with herbs in and standing upright I did admittedly wonder if they would just fall out overnight. But a month later the roots have held strong and my parsley, chives, rosemary and rocket have taken off. From carrying fruit to growing and displaying herbs – the pallet box lives on, and my stash of herbs is now home grown. Nana would be proud.
