Home to 126 years of harness racing, iconic Alexandra Park is an Auckland City landmark. As well as a strong history, it is in an ideal location.

Soon, however, Alexandra Park will be known for refined apartment living as well as refined blood lines, becoming Auckland's newest, most ambitious urban village. The project has been described as one of the biggest urban redevelopment and brownfields transformations in the city. And construction is already underway, says Loukas Petrou, managing director of Canam Construction, the builders on this upmarket lifestyle project.

"Showcasing the best in architecture and urban design and aimed at owner-occupiers, the 246 apartments will sit above a new urban village in the Auckland Trotting Club's former Greenlane carpark.

About 750 residents will live in the one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, which include some with rooftop gardens, and penthouses that offer expansive Auckland views.

Alexandra Park will be a mix of sleek residential apartments, boutique retail, vibrant restaurants and cafes, with historic Cornwall Park across the road.

"The fact they're spacious, beautifully designed, well-constructed, and in the double grammar school zone makes them a very good investment," says Auckland Trotting Club CEO Dominique Dowding.

Canam Construction has already carried out significant earthworks, excavating thousands of cubic metres of dirt and basalt rock. Petrou says the company's environmental practices will ensure the project has a light carbon footprint.

Stage 1 consists of the two-level, approximately 10,000m² underground basement carpark. This is just one large-scale aspect of the development. The two main towers will be constructed of structural steel welded sections, weighing about 1500 tonnes.

Canam will employ over 200 people on site. The experienced Auckland commercial builder has value-engineered the multi-faceted project with the principal consulting teams to ensure the architecture is delivered on time and in a cost-effective manner.
