Community spaces are markers of place in time, they define the enduring character of their urban environment and become synonymous with the identity of a community.
This time next year
In under a year, the retail and dining at Thirty Eight Elizabeth will be open. The first apartments and townhouses at Elizabeth Towers won’t be far behind for viewing and purchasing.
The new building will feature 97 high-end apartments in two towers and 23 luxury townhouses. We are already fielding enquiries from interested buyers of what will be stunning homes. However, we are choosing to build before bringing the offering to the market to demonstrate its high level of thought, craftsmanship and quality – seeing is believing.
Public car park complete
Following completion of the basement car park, that will exclusively be used by residents, the ground floor of the public car park is now complete.
Once finished, more than 170 car parks will be available to the public. These will be split over four levels with access off First Avenue.
A large services team has been involved in building the car park including Toyle (plumbing), Aotea (electrical), Tempest (mechanical) and Zero Fire (passive fire). We are proud to have so many quality contractors as part of our development team.
Creating all important indoor/outdoor flow
When designing our apartments and town houses, we have had a strong focus on creating a sense of space and light.
With our apartments and town houses sensitively positioned to deliver stunning city and harbour views, the generously sized apartment balconies are an important part in creating this feel.
The prefabricated concrete balconies come to site ready-made with drainage falls and are lifted into place.
We are now well on our way with the installation of the balconies.
New branding coming soon
Within the next few months, you’ll see the launch of new branding for the development, including the release of the names of the apartments and town houses and the retail and dining precinct.
This is a very exciting stage of the development as we start to see our end product come together with a cohesive look and feel. As mentioned above, we will also launch a new website featuring our new brand. We will send out a special edition newsletter once it is live, so watch this space!
Farmers milestones make way for podium
The Farmers flagship store is starting to take shape, with the ground floor complete, first floor nearing completion and the roof of the new store making great progress.
Not only is this an exciting milestone for the store, but it also marks the start of construction of the residential rooftop podium.
The podium will be a modern, low maintenance communal garden terrace that replaces the traditional backyard, without losing the enjoyment of a garden space. The space will include a residents’ lounge, pool, spa, gym and shared gardens.
