Kāinga Ora, Tonar Street

The development was designed to ensure the most efficient use of the land to allow for additional housing supply by providing a high quality internal and external residential environment for future residents and was constructed in a modular fashion. The site is accessed directly from Tonar Street, with onsite parking internalised behind the building.

The overall development makes a strong and positive contribution to the emerging urban form of Northcote and Lake Road itself

The village comprises three new apartment buildings providing 276 new homes with wrap-around support services, shared community, retail, and workspaces.

Te Mātāwai is designed with manaakitanga at its heart and with support and shared services for residents. A range of apartment typologies are provided to meet housing needs and the building has been designed to wrap around a communal open space area to the rear with additional rooftop shared spaces.

The buildings provide a strong and active edge to Greys Avenue with new commercial, community, and retail ground floor uses. The site is located close to the Waihorotiu Stream, and this has been woven into the design which has sought to reflect the mauri and tikanga of the wai.

The buildings are now complete and welcoming residents.

This formed part of a wider master planned development undertaken by Classic Builders at Hobsonville Point involving a range of typologies including apartments, terraces and standalone homes.

This development comprises of a new apartment building and terraced houses in Meadowbank, comprising of 90 units in total. This was a complex site with a stream feature, and various zone interfaces.

The building comprises retail on the ground floor and 117 apartments all located within close proximity to the Albany Bus Interchange.

We obtained non-notified resource consent to redevelop this site and establish five new dwellings, create a new vehicle access and a bridge over a stream including associated earthworks and vegetation removal.

We obtained non-notified resource consent for the construction of two apartment buildings on a base podium comprising a total of 168 residential units including 86 one bedroom units, 76 two bedroom units and 6 two bedroom townhouses. Along with 325m² retail floor space at ground level and 160 car parking spaces. The architects for the project were mc².

All apartments provide a direct interface to the surrounding streets with a strong contribution to the local community through excellent design, quality and affordability.

We have provided ongoing comprehensive planning advice and support to the Auckland Trotting Club for a suite of resource consents for a mixed use development containing 246 residential apartments including commercial activities such as retail, cafes/restaurants and entertainment facilities each housed across four buildings of a 35 metre maximum height. Car parking is provided at basement level and at grade within the development. The architects for the project were RTA Studio.  

This is an exciting area located at the northern end of the Hobsonville Point development. We have assisted with obtaining multiple resource consents, working with a number of nationally recognised architects. The project has involved working with heritage buildings, a range of apartment buildings plus terraces and standalone housing.

The crowning project for this area included the notified consenting for two apartment buildings ranging from 3 to 15 storeys and a three storey terrace to provide for 101 dwellings. This proposal infringed building height by 40 metres.

The proposed development will provide for a marker building at the harbour entrance to the Hobsonville Point Regeneration Area which is catering for approximately 4,500 new homes and is an exemplar of providing vibrant high density housing that has a true richness in terms of build variety.


This site was zoned Mixed Housing Urban and the proposed apartment building features a number of innovative sustainability features, including a car lift.
