55 Takanini School Road, Takanini

Auckland, New Zealand

Takanini Central is a mixed use property development spanning 9 hectares land bordering Takanini’s green field area. Only 55 minutes by train to Auckland CBD, or 23 minutes drive, Takanini Central will be home to 88 x 3 bedroom standalone residential homes, a corner retail block with 13 retail stores with apartment living over the top, and 61 live/work units which will serve as either warehouse/workshop/studio etc with accommodation or office overhead.

Designed by the team at A Studio Architects, the houses here at Takanini Central maximise space and sunlight, while modern open plan living areas open onto private back lawns. Moving away from the traditional fenced property, these houses encourage community with open areas and Pocket Parks created as space for neighbours to encounter each other. Pocket Parks are planted with fruit trees and vegetable beds, as well as flowering herbs and bushes.

The first stage of the residential is under construction now with the entirety slated for completion in 2017.
