This Takapuna development will redefine luxury apartment living

Setting a new benchmark for residential living in Takapuna and comprising 43 elegant apartments, Katrine is the pinnacle of luxury for discerning purchasers. Introducing an exemplary level of finish, form and function to the North Shore, this architecturally-designed development is set to become a true icon and landmark building within the exclusive coastal location.

Rising up a total of eight storeys – one of the last of this height to have consent in the area – the two striking towers will become the new gateway to Takapuna. Located just beyond the intersection of Barry’s Point Road on Anzac Street, the position signals the arrival into the coveted beachside suburb when driving in from Auckland CBD. The name Katrine is a nod to local history. During the 1860s, when Takapuna was subdivided into villa sites, Anzac Street was called Katrine Street. It was only after WWI that the name was changed to Anzac.

Takapuna is known as the ‘Capital’ of the North Shore – a vibrant town centre embracing the sweep of golden beach one side and glorious Lake Pupuke on the other. Residents of Katrine are just a flat, five-minute stroll from everything on offer – pristine parks, high end dining, upmarket retail and entertainment. It’s a haven for lovers of the outdoors as well as urban sophisticates and is only a short drive across the bridge to the city for commuters.

High profile local architectural studio Formis have brought Katrine to life, creating an exterior structure unlike anything else in New Zealand. The combination of dark metal box frames, varied window openings and vertical timber elements creates an appearance that shifts with the viewing position, plus the two-tower split allows for optimum light and sun to all apartments. One, two and three-bedroom floorplans are available, ranging from 74m2 up to 180m2, and the elevation affords dazzling views including Lake Pupuke, East Coast Bays, Hauraki Gulf, CBD and Waitemata Harbour, especially from the exquisite penthouses.

Generous, well-planned interiors exude understated elegance, with beautiful detailing complementing only the finest finishes and appliances. Every residence has solid Oak flooring, floor-to-ceiling joinery and frameless glass balustrades, as well as stylish, fully-tiled bathrooms and sleek grey marble and timber kitchens. Ground floor apartments have their own large wrap-around entertaining courtyards, while the upper level homes enjoy boxed terraces. Each two-bedroom residence is allocated one carpark, while the three-bedroom variants come with two. Residents also have access to a covered pool and spa located across from the main lobby.

Coming soon to the market, Katrine has been designed to offer the best of the best in Takapuna. Those who seek optimum luxury, space, contemporary comfort and the freedom of apartment living must contact the agents for an exclusive preview of this premium residential destination. Approval has been sought for offshore purchasers and construction is expected to commence at the end of the year.
