New pocket neigh­bour­hood brings life to One­hunga

Southern Real Estate Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

A new res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment in One­hunga set to pro­vide homes for up to 500 peo­ple will be re­leas­ing the first stage of one and two bed­room apart­ments in the mar­ket in Oc­to­ber 2016.

Fab­ric of One­hunga’s mas­ter­plan com­prises 239 new apart­ments across five build­ings, sur­rounded by land­scaped grounds. It is sit­u­ated on a 1.29ha site that spans be­tween Spring St and Vic­to­ria St.

The site is be­ing de­vel­oped by An­drew and Tim La­mont, Di­rec­tors of La­mont & Co. Their vi­sion for Fab­ric of One­hunga was to cre­ate a new pocket neigh­bour­hood where con­sid­ered apart­ment liv­ing meets shared green spa­ces in one of Auck­land’s old­est ur­ban vil­lages – and to en­rich the al­ready vi­brant so­cial fab­ric of the area.

Col­lab­o­rat­ing on the de­vel­op­ment are Ash­ton Mitchell ar­chi­tects and land­scape ar­chi­tects, Boffa Miskell. Lead­ing in­te­rior de­sign mag­a­zine, Home­style, will also be con­sult­ing on the in­te­rior aes­thetic and will be styling the full two bed­room dis­play apart­ment.

Apart­ment in­te­ri­ors will in­clude con­tem­po­rary fin­ishes, clever stor­age, spa­cious in­te­ri­ors and max­imised nat­u­ral light. All apart­ments will flow out to bal­conies or large ter­race gar­dens and share ac­cess to the pocket park at the heart of the de­vel­op­ment. In­ter­nal ar­eas range from 57m2 to 89m2 in size.

Fab­ric’s ar­chi­tec­ture re­flects the site’s light in­dus­trial her­itage with build­ings wrapped in steel cladding, black join­ery and tim­ber de­tail­ing. The apart­ment build­ings will fea­ture se­cure base­ment car park­ing and nat­u­rally ven­ti­lated glass atri­ums, with pedes­trian bridge struc­tures pro­vid­ing ac­cess to the apart­ments.

Fab­ric of One­hunga is cur­rently reg­is­tered with the New Zealand Green Build­ing Coun­cil and is tar­get­ing a Homes­tar 6 De­sign and Built rat­ing.

The de­vel­op­ment will be re­leased in stages, with 82 apart­ments form­ing the first re­lease. Prices will start from $545,000 for a one bed­room with car park. Com­ple­tion of the de­vel­op­ment’s first stage is planned for 2019. The sales dis­play and two bed­room show home will open in late Oc­to­ber.
