ELEVATE APARTMENTS| Under Construction | 16 Levels

This one has started construction so I though it should have its own thread. Photos forthcoming.



Official Page

Work to start on Taranaki St apartments - Dom Post - 24 Apr 2012

First new apartment development built from scratch in Wellington since the global financial crisis - Dom Post - 23 Oct 2012

About one-third of the apartments in the 82-unit block have been sold off the plans. (23/10/12)

At 16 storeys, Elevate will be one of the tallest residential buildings in Wellington. The 82 apartments will range in price from just over $300,000 to $600,000. The smallest will be about 50 square metres, and the largest 98sqm. There will also be car parking and storage options, with double glazed windows on all units.

The apartments have been designed by award-winning architects Architecture Plus.

Stratum Management has been involved in some major Wellington apartment developments in recent years.

It built the Portal and Piermont blocks in Cable St, Monument on Wakefield St, and the two-stage Republic development in Tennyson and Lorne streets.

Other developments have included the Altair in Rintoul St and a new block on the site of the old Parade Cafe in Oriental Parade.

Taken this morning (8 Mar 13)

Not much going on yet. Seem to just be drilling for the structural supports. Yearly days yet.

I wonder if the rear of the apartments will have windows or not?

Back walls will probably be frosted glass bathroom windows, I can't imagine anybody wanting to have that view. It is going to be yet another great addition to WLG's fabulous apartment scene.

Indeed. The city centre has so many fantastic medium-height apartment buildings.

Was thinking the same thing looking at dmanww's WGTN projects photos. Lots of little spaces being filled in/upgraded with medium height.

Should be the model for Christchurch.

New design to 'cushion' block
- Dom Post (25/04/13)

A 15-storey apartment block to be built in Taranaki St will incorporate cutting- edge new earthquake strengthening technology.

It will also become the tallest residential all-steel- frame building in Wellington.

Slow progress on this site at the moment. Foundation blocks are now beginning to appear so should speed up soon.

not much to see in these. blue screen makes it difficult to get a clean shot

I agree, its just the CCcouncil does not want them they are locked into the small town mentality it will hold up the rebuild for sure.

One is the giant carpark the sits between the Amora Hotel (fmr Duxton) and the Opera House, the other (which i think is one you mean) is the rear of an older building that sits between the Hotel and the apartments on the corner. There are currently apartments in it and it looks like their balconys sit on top of the brick shed you can see, which is a garage of some sort.

Maybe the construction method isn't half as complex, even with the quake-resist technology.

From today (3 Aug 2013)



Different color beams going in. They are angled between floors. Could be the structure of the parking lot.
