3 Storey Walk up Apartments on Lake Road

Originally 2 traditional statehouses this new development has 12 new dwellings comprising of two 3 storey walk-ups each with 2 bedrooms.

With many great schools and community facilities, all near by this is a highly sort after area for families to live.

This development previously came to the Group with resource consent for 9 units already approved. However, we did not think this was the best use of this valuable land and recommended a new master plan that had the potential for 15 units.

Our client took this on board and revised the scheme plan to 12 as the final design, with Design Partners designing this attractive scheme. 


Designed to a higher standard than would typically be seen on a social housing development the attention to detail includes aesthetic treatments (brickwork detailing) use of weatherboards, louvers, and metal cladding to ensure this new development blends into the existing streetscape.

Like most construction projects this site located on busy Lake Road has added both frustrations to locals and challenges to our team as they work with the community to minimise travel flow disruptions during peak periods while also ensuring the construction programme meets our client's requirements.
