Buckley Avenue, Hobsonville
Two buildings of 33 and 26 one to three bedroom apartments with ground level and basement parking.
Construction Budget: Undisclosed
Under Construction: 2019
PBA provided the client with design and documentation for urban design panel review and successful Resource Consent application.
The proposed two buildings are intended to appeal to different markets within the Hobsonville urban area.
The water-edge building of spacious two and three bedroom apartments with generous outdoor spaces and broad harbour views, is marketed toward purchasers with a higher than average specific budget looking for a very special home with matching environmental amenity.
The road facing building incorporates one to two bedroom apartments, all with generous balconies or terraces and sunlight amenity. 18 of the 33 apartments are to be marketed as ‘affordable housing’ at a capped price.
The relationship of the two buildings, in spatial and material terms, was critical to the success of the design and resulted in a very high level of privacy, light and view amenity for apartments in both buildings.
The development of the project through the Urban Design process received high praise from the reviewing panel and achieved Resource Consent approval without complication or delay.
