Previously part of the Alexandra Park Trotting Club grounds, Parkview on Cornwall is located by the beautiful Cornwall Park, with views to Maungawhau (Mount Eden) and Maungakiekie (One Tree Hill).
The development consists of two apartment buildings – The Queen of the Park and Cardigan Bay, with ten levels of apartments, ground floor retail spaces, generous amenity spaces and a basement carpark linking both buildings.
The building development is integrated around the Auckland Trotting Club’s historic entry, including heritage gates and ticket booths. To honour the heritage space, the Parkview project is introducing a new pedestrian plaza to ground the gates in the surrounding landscape.
The materiality of the buildings uses aged, rumbled brickwork to the lower stories in reference to the heritage brickwork in the surrounding Epsom area. The top level of the buildings are metal clad, giving modern contrast and relief to the buildings. Both apartment buildings utilise generous expanses of glass and winter garden pop-outs to corners, maximising sunlight and views to the surrounding Maunga (Mountains).
