Construction underway for unique Alba Takapuna apartments

Development of the desirable Alba Takapuna is well underway with progress on track for completion mid 2018. Developed by local company Legacy Property, Alba Takapuna provides a quality boutique secured living option right in Takapuna. Mitchell Jefferson of Legacy Property says ‘one of the key things that attracted us to this site was that there were so many amenities within walking distance ; gyms, swimming pools, shops, restaurants and of course the beach itself”

The boutique nature of Alba Takapuna includes 19 high quality apartments over eight floors providing for a nice community environment while providing all the benefits of secured urban living in one of Auckland’s most desirable suburbs.

Adding attraction to the development is the unique design advantages. All apartments have generous dimensions with 2.6 metre stud height and good natural light.  Design features include timber floors, over sized doors and underfloor heating in the bathrooms.  In addition there is a focus on sustainability and economical living with a HomeStar 6 sustainability rating targeted. This includes increased levels of insulation and soundproofing, very efficient water and ventilation systems, solar panels to assist with power consumption, stacking car parks and hand selected top rated appliances from Fisher& Paykel.   Consideration has also been given to managing on going body corporate cost with the building manager being offsite but available, and onsite regularly.

Construction is well underway with the highly important foundation work being largely completed and above the ground work ready to commence in line with July 2018 completion.

The developers, Legacy Property are locally based in Anzac Street and have a 13 year reputation for similar quality developments in all the major New Zealand cities. For Alba Takapuna they have carefully selected their partners including Architect Two Point Zero Design, Construction by Woodview, Interior Design by Sonya Cotter and sales marketed by Gerry Petrie and Alison Parker of Premium Real Estate (

Gerry says it has been great working with Legacy Property who are highly experienced and very clearly focussed on providing a great living environment. “Not surprisingly sales have been strong and there is now only a small number of apartments still available, with construction now underway buyers have additional confidence in buying off the plans”

Two 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom apartments from $1,199,000 and three 1 bedroom plus study from $779,000. All apartments feature oak floors, stone benchtops, induction cooking and latest smart active fridge/freezer.
