PROPERTY COUNCIL NZ RIDER LEVETT BUCKNALL AWARDS 2014 ARROW INTERNATIONAL MULTI-UNIT RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY AWARD EXCELLENCE AWARD CARLAW PARK STUDENT VILLAGE, AUCKLAND — BEST IN CATEGORY PROPERTY COUNCIL NEW ZEALAND RIDER LEVETT BUCKNALL Property Industry Awards 2013 OWNER Carlaw Campus Limited Partnership The new Carlaw Park Student Village for the University of Auckland has set a new benchmark for intensive student residential living in New Zealand. Its campus-style village accommodation encourages a strong sense of community and successfully connects two contrasting public destinations – the future Parnell Railway Station and the Auckland Domain park. The campus consists of self-contained apartments with communal lounges, study spaces and amenities for all students. Four building blocks are carefully orientated to maximise city and park views, and shroud a central outdoor plaza for student gatherings. The extension of Nicholls Lane allows public access from Stanley Street through to the station and onto Parnell’s shopping precinct beyond. Judges’ Comments This was a carefully considered development, which created an excellent commercial result for the developers, and provided much needed accommodation for an increasing student demand in Auckland.
