Beach Road, Auckland City
161 Apartments over Carparking and Retail
Construction Budget: $63m
Under Construction 2017

  • Distinctive art deco character design
  • 50% pre-construction sales

A significant site on an inner-city arterial road has yielded a substantial residential development encompassing 161 apartments over 5 storeys. With a client brief to maximise site potential without compromising the prestige value of the project, PB&A have generated designs for high end apartments finished with quality products, systems and materials. A distinctive art deco ‘Moderne’ look was detailed to reflect the heritage buildings in the vicinity.

The premium site presented a number of design challenges. Existing adjacent buildings had to be protected and propped during construction with extensive ground works required. High wind zones and the proximity to the ocean required specific façade and structure solutions to accommodate wind pressures and sea spray.

With over 50% of apartments sold before start of construction, and development currently on budget, this is a highly successful project for the developer.
