The Vulcan is a luxury development of 38 freehold apartments in Auckland's Victoria Quarter.

Drawing inspiration from the original use of the site – the old Millar Paterson Metals foundry – The Vulcan is named after the Roman god of fire and metalworking.

The Vulcan has a distinctly New York feel within an urban setting across from Victoria Park and an edgy aesthetic to its tower design.

With public transport, hip dining, glamorous shopping and diverse entertainment on your doorstep, this is your opportunity to have the Manhattan lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of.

Taking inspiration from the metal foundry the site was previously used for, The Vulcan is a sophisticated piece of design crafted by renowned architects Leuschke Group. Bronze detailing is used throughout the building and the facade is an experimentation in reflectivity. Its clean lineal structure is broken by a bold bronze frame, creating a building with elegant height and eyecatching form. The Vulcan is designed to stand apart.

Split into two residential towers, the design plays with scale – between the overall size of the building and the fine detail within the glass frit. Residences have generous indoor and outdoor living areas, and have either park or city views. The apartments sit upon a commercial podium, grounding the building to the streetfront, while upper floors open out to emphasis the views of the city and the harbour.

Each apartment in The Vulcan has been crafted to make the most of modern, urban living. Floor to ceiling joinery and bespoke glass balustrades pay homage to the spectacular views. The terraces run the fullwidth of each residence, and boast flush joinery for seamless indoor-outdoor flow. The interiors are sleek and edgy, juxtaposing glossy and textured materials. Concrete-look tiles and matte black or white kitchen cabinetry complete the sensuous, urban look.

Did you know you only have to pay a 10% deposit for any new build property, with the balance due on completion? That's just one advantage of buying new. Find out more in our Guild to buying off the plan.
