Our latest development in the heart of Northcote, in partnership with Universal Homes Limited and Kāinga Ora - Homes and Communities.

The site has close access to a wide range of amenities, community facilities, transport networks, parks and walkways. When completed, the Cadness Loop Reserve will form the southern border of the lot, and at around 3,000sqm in size, it will provide green space for ball sports, playground equipment and space to socialise and relax. This reserve will also link with the proposed Awataha Greenway and eventually provide a walking path to Northcote Town Centre.

The 45 new homes are a mix of two- and three-bedroom terraces and one- and two-bedroom apartments. There are three apartment buildings arranged around the site's perimeter to activate and define the streetscapes, whilst the row of terraces face the new reserve, taking advantage of the outlook over the wide-open green space.

“What we always focus on when we introduce density into the existing urban fabric is the awareness of the context. So, what you will see in this part of the development are strong, simple gabled forms and street frontages that clearly mark and define the street edges and, in themselves, are made up of a grain and a texture that relates to the surrounding area,"
