Alexandra Park CEO wins inaugural property award

Alexandra Park chief executive Dominique Dowding has won the Property Council’s ‘Resene Women In Property’ award for her ongoing leadership on the significant urban village development currently under construction at 223 Greenlane West, Epsom.

The award was part of the New Zealand Property Council’s inaugural Auckland Property People Awards 2016 held recently at the Viaduct Events Centre.

The ‘Women In Property’ award criteria sought someone showcasing exceptional skills and dedication and who’s contribution has achieved outstanding things to their organisation and/or the property industry. The winner needed to exude the attributes and achievements that would make them a role model to other women in the industry and respected by industry peers.

Ms Dowding says she is truly humbled to win the inaugural Women In Property award but says the credit belongs to others.

“This is really a tribute to the Auckland Trotting Club board, our members, and our staff for embarking on this journey and their sheer dedication to deliver a first-class development. I am also incredibly indebted to our project partners including our lead architect RTA Studio, construction companies Canam and Ganellen, international urban designers Civitas, and our extremely capable project managers N-Compass,” says Ms Dowding.

As chief executive Ms Dowding has led the board’s strategic turn-around of the 126-year old iconic Auckland Trotting Clubto put it on a more commercial footing, ensuring its long-term financial sustainability and the survival of harness racing in the northern region.

A key component of the turn-around has been the decision to build a high-end urban village on part of the club’s car-park on Greenlane West. The mixed-use development will include 246 apartments, a grocer, boutique retail, and some soon to be announced cafes and restaurants.

Only four townhouses, two apartments and one penthouse remain for sale with the project dubbed as one of Auckland’s largest brownfield developments and fastest selling.
