Diggers in action at Alexandra Park

Diggers in action at Alexandra Park as earthworks season kicks off

The first of October traditionally marks the start of the earthworks season for the New Zealand construction and development sectors, and no more apparent is this than at Auckland’s iconic Alexandra Park.

Those travelling along Auckland’s busy Green Lane West will see diggers and mountains of dirt in part of the Auckland Trotting Club’s former car-park. This work marks the beginning of construction on the first apartment building for Alexandra Park’s ambitious new urban village development, with residents moving in from 2017.

Alexandra Park chief executive Dominique Dowding says over the coming three months Canam Construction diggers will move approximately 30,000m3 (cubic metres) of dirt and about 2,500m3 of basalt rock to make way for piling, underground car-parking and residential storage.

As well as containing 118 beautifully-appointed apartments, the first building will have 2,500 sqm of ground-floor retail including a new gourmet supermarket concept for Auckland which will soon to be announced.

“For Alexandra Park having the diggers move in is a great milestone given this year we’re also celebrating 125 years of being Auckland’s home of harness racing. This exciting transformation and new urban village will sustain and secure the Auckland Trotting Club’s future. We can’t wait,” says Ms Dowding.

The on-site apartment display suite is open from 12pm to 4pm daily or by appointment by calling 0800-275-484 or visiting www.apliving.co.nz
