Auckland’s newest urban village proves popular

150217 - Alexandra Park -View - 07

Auckland’s iconic Alexandra Park has begun construction on an exciting new urban village set to open in 2017. Stunning one, two and three bedroom apartments plus penthouses are selling fast with prices starting from $550,000.

Kiwis moving back to New Zealand and expats wanting a solid investment in the strong Auckland residential housing market are among the buyers.

The proposition of affordable luxury in one of Auckland’s most desirable locations has ensured strong public interest since the beautiful display apartment opened at Alexandra Park earlier this year. All on freehold titles, most of the apartments in stage one have already sold with stage two and three now being actively marketed.

Buyer feedback points to the generous size of the apartments, the high-studded ceilings, the ample storage, the stunning entertainer’s kitchen complete with Bosch appliances, the beautifully appointed bathrooms, the seamless indoor/outdoor flow, and the fact they all optimise the sun and views while retaining privacy.

Alexandra Park has appointed award-winning Auckland architects RTA Studio who have not only designed attractive buildings but have come up with the unique concept of the garden room, rather than the usual open balcony.

With Auckland apartment buyers increasingly wanting more usable but private outdoor space, the garden rooms ensure additional space and cover as well as operable sun and privacy screens.

The spacious and clever apartment design and the overall outdoor environment designed by leading Canadian urban design expert Joe Hruda are all critical to ensuring exemplary quality is delivered at good value.

Alexandra Park is proud to be able to deliver an ambitious project which will see much of the harness racing club’s car-park completely transformed on Green Lane West.

The development will consist of a compelling mix of residences and landmark architecture, matched by lovely promenades, boutique retail, al fresco dining, great public spaces, and good public transport links. All while a much loved 125-year old trotting club continues to operate from the central Epsom site.

The end result will be a world-class urban village, an entire new community for Auckland and a much needed heart for the desirable and leafy suburbs of Epsom and Greenlane.

The attractive and significant residential catchment is helping to create strong interest from prospective retailers and some of Auckland’s most well-known and respected hospitality operators.

Alexandra Park is set to be a real lifestyle destination, with daily conveniences, and boutique retail. It will boast a strong food and beverage offering for lovers of cafés, restaurants and alfresco dining. A new gourmet grocer concept will also be part of the development.

The food and beverage offering will attract those visitors to the beautifully expansive and historic Cornwall Park and One Tree Hill Domain just across the road.

Another attribute that makes Alexandra Park an unbeatable location is the fact that it sits within the highly prestigious double grammar school zone, with some of the country’s leading private schools also nearby, not to mention Auckland’s bustling central city just seven kilometres away.

While being elegant and spacious inside, the apartments also come with a great outlook to Auckland’s beautiful outdoors. Those on the top floors and north-facing will see the city and views of the sparkling Waitemata Harbour, while others will overlook the edge of a live trotting track.

Other residents will enjoy lovely views of the surrounding volcanic cones such as Mt Eden – views that make Auckland so unique all while being on the edge of Cornwall Park – the city’s largest park.

With residents set to move into Alexandra Park from 2017, this exciting new development for New Zealand’s largest city promises to be a truly vibrant 21st century urban village.
