The Merchant Quarter apartments are the final phase of the New Lynn’s high-amenity, mixed used development.
This multi-stage development consists of three main buildings. Stage one comprises of Building A - a mixed retail and healthcare building and Building B a car park building. Stage two incorporates a 10-story residential tower and planned addition of 25 apartments which are currently in progress.
While the apartments will introduce a new housing typology to the high density precinct, the new addition will create a greater variety of affordable living apartments within the precinct and to the New Lynn area.
The 80m2 apartments feature a skip-stop arrangement which wraps two units around a single circulation corridor providing cross-ventilation with all living spaces and balconies open out to the northern sun and bedrooms to the south providing tenants privacy from the street.
Located on what is now the development's upper carpark deck along the north and western edge of the carpark. The buildings design allows all the apartments to take in the best views out to the town centre while minimising any overshadowing that may have been created by the residential towers.
