Soto: eastern living at its finest
From high above the Remuera ridgeline, the future of eastern living is rising – and the view has never looked this good.
Introducing Soto: a brand-new development at 6-14 Meadowbank Road that’s set to become a modern landmark in Auckland’s sought-after eastern suburbs.
Bordering Remuera and Meadowbank, the project will see 65 new homes constructed, offering a choice of living from the 58 apartment residences to the seven freestanding Pavilions.
Due to its elegant interiors, generous park-like grounds and graceful integration of the Pavilion buildings, Soto takes apartment living to another level – even from examining the plans, it’s a step above any eastern development we’ve seen to date.
This is indebted to its design, where architects Monk
Mackenzie (creators of
Auckland’s internationallyrecognised #LightPathAKL Cycleway) have crafted a style of horizontal architecture by constructing a stone-clad podium with steel and glass terraces on alternate floors above.
Not only does this help it blend into the quiet Meadowbank neighbourhood, it also gives the development a simple, elegant look of two terraces and a strong roof rather than a disrupting sixfloor build.
However, for many the beauty of Soto will be in the details – both inside and out.
Indoors, we’re blown away by the sumptuous features (think oak timbers, travertine stone and crafted kitchens) designed by Hare Interiors; while outside the 1100 square metre Central Park, dreamed up by landscapers Boffa Miskell, enhances the site with lawns, edible gardens and a shared barbecue area.
With apartment sizes ranging from 57-94 square metres for onebedroom living to 230-238 square metres for three-bedroom Pavilions, the living is perfect whether using as a lowmaintenance, lock-up-and-leave sanctuary or transforming into your family home.
Close to shops, top schools and transport, as well as St Heliers and Remuera Golf Course, at Soto, the best of eastern living is at your fingertips.
Due for completion in 2020, prices start from $618,750 for qualifying first-home buyers to $4.9 million for premium apartments.
