59 France is the peak of conceptualised design that embodies living spaces that fit the lifestyle of the modern Aucklander.
Auckland has transformed into one of the world's most liveable cities, and as a result the urban spaces where we work, reside and explore have also evolved. 59 France Street has been in the Urban Collective sights for over a decade. As the surrounding area grew and cultivated its own personality, it became the perfect location to grasp when the opportunity arose. The area is distinctive and exceptional and UC have endeavoured to encapsulate this in the design, setting the benchmark for the new age of apartment development in Auckland.
The history of the area is set within the blue-collar warehouses and workshops once populating the surrounding streets. In homage to this heritage, the lower floors are designed with an open warehouse aesthetic, utilising textural distressed brick, with black steel framing to define each of the openings. The contrasting modern elements of the building sit atop, to meet the city skyline eye to eye, with cascading views of the inner west and Waitakere Ranges.
Each apartment exudes the quality, design and timeless architectural craftsmanship that continues our vision of a superior lifestyle choice. Urban Collective have selected the best fixtures, fittings and finishes to meet the expectations of a discerning owner and to ensure the delivery of a refined living space.
All bedrooms and living spaces have been thoughtfully placed towards the outer walls of the apartments, maximising the ample light and views. A large north facing landscaped courtyard, designed by the award winning LandLAB, is provided for residents to enjoy the surrounds, or spend time with children and family. These large common grounds compliment the impressive architectural build with wide-open gardens, bringing nature back into the complex.
59 France is within walking distance of the Auckland University and AUT, Auckland Hospital, the Domain and Museum, and the buzz of the CBD. The immediate proximity to Queen Street, K Road, Ponsonby, Mt Eden, Newmarket and the city transport hubs means stress-free and easy movement around the city. There is something in these precincts for everyone, from the creative young professionals to the empty nesters with newly discovered freedom.
