Auckland Council has sold its heritage-listed Civic Administration Building to be turned into apartments before resolving strict heritage requirements.

Earlier this month, the council announced it had reached an "agreement" with developer John Love's company Civic Lane Ltd to sell a prime piece of central city real estate, including the landmark skyscraper, for $3 million.

The sale went ahead without Love producing a heritage management plan under the terms of his resource consent and months of talks last year with council regulatory staff that failed to resolve a replacement facade for the CAB.
