McConnell Property helps re-define renting in New Zealand
Location: Takapuna, Auckland
We’re excited to announce that McConnell Property has lodged the resource consent application for an innovative new rental experience located in Takapuna on the old Gasometer site.
Consisting of 350 new rental apartments, this is the first of a planned portfolio of Build-to-Rent developments by the McConnell Property and Cedar Pacific Consortium. Working in partnership with Eke Panuku, we will deliver a world-class Build-to-Rent project with Greenstar 5 and Homestar 6 sustainability ratings.
“Our design consultants, Eke Panuku, Cedar Pacific and McConnell Property are delighted to share the plans for the new Build-to-Rent apartment project in Takapuna,” says McConnell Property Project Director Tony McKee. “This exciting new Build-to-Rent apartment project responds to its beachside location, attracting and fostering a community of active residents. When completed it will provide a level of amenity presently unrivalled for rental accommodation in Auckland and stimulate additional economic activity in the Takapuna town centre.”
Build-to-rent gives Kiwis secure, long-term rental accommodation with shared amenities that focused a community environment. The accommodation is owned by investors and will be professionally managed. This style of living will appeal to a wide range of people, from first-time renters to those looking for an alternative to retirement village living.
North Shore Councillor Chris Darby also welcomes the project, “Building 350 new apartments enables a big lift in the number of people who call Takapuna centre their home, complementing the thousands who already call it their workplace or a great place to visit. This quality development is another step in making Takapuna even more vital and attractive."
