Luxury apartments require a special building and project-management skill-set and Dominion Constructors more than delivered with the high-end St Marks Residences in Remuera.

St Marks Residences in Remuera offershigh-end living in a highly desirable setting. The quality of build alone required an experienced, firm hand on the construction reins and Dominion Constructors was awarded the project

The development comprises two towers rising above a common podium consisting of four blocks – the Mark, Mac, Blade and Grove, says Dominion Constructor’s project director Chris Broun.

St Marks has six storeys above ground and two of basement carpark, and includes a mixture of apartments, retail and commercial spaces.

“Construction on this project was a mixture of in-situ and precast concrete with a structural steel frame,” says Broun. 


“Plus, the interiors have been specified and completed to the highest standards to target the very top end of the apartment market.”

A 330m² lush feature wall earned the high-end St Marks Residences New Zealand’s first Homestar Innovation Point from the New Zealand Green Building Council..

Most aspects of the construction were quite straightforward, with issues like ground water, rock excavation, inclement weather and time factors all taken in stride by the respected construction firm.

One notable feature of the complex was the soaring five-storey green wall designed by Natural Habitats. The 330m² lush feature wall earned the development New Zealand’s first Homestar Innovation Point from the New Zealand Green Building Council. 

The green wall is enjoyed by residents looking into St Marks’ central courtyard and can also be glimpsed from the street. It is one of the largest of its kind in the country.

“We also project managed the many sub trades on site. The build standard required specialist contractors and we also helped with some who needed a guiding hand at this exacting level of finish.

“One example of the quality was the plaster finishes. With lots of critical light playing across walls, the wallboards and plaster had to look pristine and, by co-ordinating with good trades, we achieved that.”
