This week, the second stage of Alexandra Park’s urban village development will commence, with the Auckland Trotting Club set to turn the first sod on Thursday 28 April, according to The Bob Dey Property Report.
The second stage of the highly-anticipated development, which we have been closely involved with, will see 2500m² of ground-floor retail space created, along with a further 128 apartments. Building B1 will rise nine storeys high, while building B2 will be five storeys high, with a two-level basement carpark underneath.
Sydney-based construction firm Ganellen Construction Ltd will be working on the second stage of the project, with Local Director, Michael Doig, saying Alexandra Park is more in line with the type of largescale residential projects the firm has built its reputation on back in Sydney.
The Auckland Trotting Club made the decision to transform the carpark site at 223 Green Lane West into a mixed-use precinct back in 2014, with the project set to cost a total of $205 million.
Once complete, the Alexandra Park urban village will feature 246 freehold apartments and almost 20 retail spaces that span across three towers.
White Associates is proud to have been involved in this ground-breaking project from its inception in mid-2014, providing a range of cost management and delivery services, such as:
- Pre and post-contract services
- Cost managing the design throughout the design phase, ensuring that tenders were received within budget
- Completing a thorough tender analysis process
- Currently providing cost management services in the construction phase.
The apartments at the urban village have been hot in demand. CEO of Auckland Trotting Club, Dominique Dowding, says:
“The fact that we’ve had such strong demand from owner-occupiers is reflective of the size, high specification, and location of the Park. We are creating a true urban village. This is a private, gated community, with a central location and picturesque Cornwall Park right across the road.”
