Set to further enhance Tauranga’s growing inner-city, Vantage is a new premium mixed-use, seven storey development at 359 Cameron Road. The enviable location will provide access to the best of Tauranga and showcase sweeping water views towards the harbour and Mount Maunganui.
Vantage is a product of the dynamic collaboration between the award-wining team of developer, Black & Orange Property, architects Edwards White, and engineers, BCD Group. These consultant teams have a shared goal of providing high-quality building solutions that stand the test of time and offer positive outcomes for the community.
As described by the Development Manager of Black & Orange Property, Daniel Kirk, the development will offer “the ultimate in sophisticated CBD living and create a unique destination to live, work and play.”
The building will comprise of two levels of secure basement parking, one level of commercial space – including a cafe – and four levels of residential apartments totalling 32 freehold apartments, including five luxury penthouses. Vantage features a mix of two and three bedroom residences with various bespoke configurations to suit numerous situations. With prices starting from $860,000, interest has been strong with 13 of the apartments already sold.
With Foster Construction awarded the construction contract late last year, Black and Orange are confident they have appointed a company with a strong reputation of delivering high quality projects throughout the Bay of Plenty and Waikato, who will have no problem delivering on the aspirations for the development. Coming off the back of the recent completion of the Bayfair redevelopment amongst other projects, Foster Construction are proud to be able to add another high quality development to their portfolio.
“With excavation and ground works nearly complete the riskiest part of the construction programme is behind us and it feels great to provide purchasers firm completion dates they can have confidence in. There have been many apartment complexes marketed off the plans in Tauranga that haven’t made it to the start line, and we are proud that this is becoming a reality.”
“Vantage will offer a level of amenity rarely found in city living”, said lead architect, Brian White of Vantage’s convenient and accessible location. The development is within a short drive to some of the top highlights of the Bay of Plenty region, including Mount Maunganui’s Mauao, stunning beaches and large-scale retail outlets – Tauranga Crossing and Bayfair. Vantage is also a short walk from Tauranga’s harbourside and popular dining and entertainment area, The Strand.
Careful planning and attention to detail of each apartment aligns with the aspirations for the development to achieve timeless quality and easy-care living. The acoustic and thermal performance also aligns with the visual quality, being well in excess of standard building code requirements, allowing residents to entertain with minimal disruption to other apartments. They will also retain heat during winter and keep cool during the warmer months for all year comfort.
The over-height ceilings and doors combined with floor-to-ceiling glazing maximises natural light and allows residents of Vantage to enjoy panoramic and unobstructed views over the harbour and hills beyond.
High quality finishes and fixtures throughout complement the refined aesthetic of the holistically designed kitchens and bathrooms. These spaces achieve timeless elegance while offering a sense of calmness.
Large, sheltered decks offer protection from prevailing winds while capturing the outstanding views. All apartments have been elevated above the street, providing privacy from the city below.
Vantage will be the second instalment of mixed-use developments for developer, Black & Orange Property, following the success of their Hamilton mixed-used development, Parkhaven. The five-storey development had all 21 apartments sold by the time the building was completed in early 2018.
Since its completion, the building has received numerous awards including the Property Council Waikato Urban Design and Supreme Excellence Awards, the Hamilton CBD Most Improved Site Over $500K Award and the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Architecture Multi-Unit Housing Award. Black & Orange Property look forward to delivering another outstanding project and are passionate about the revitalisation of Tauranga’s CBD and seeing the city thrive and grow.
Vantage is being marketed by the renowned Harcourts sales team of The Mount and Papamoa – Team Theo. “At Team Theo, we feel privileged to bring Vantage to the market.
Working alongside the developers and architects, it’s rewarding to be the final element that will see this stunning complex come to fruition,” says Theo Smith.
“As this country’s fifth largest city and a major influence on today’s lifestyle, Tauranga answers every desire. We believe Vantage completes that fulfilment. The position is key.
This central location on the corner of Cameron Road and 4th Avenue is perfectly positioned to enjoy city life. Shopping, business, the university, entertainment, and waterfront recreation – it’s all right on the doorstep. Restaurants and cafes – across the road and beneath these apartments; with many more close to this address.”
“It’s a significant step up in terms of space and sophistication. Designed around enlightened luxury, these apartments capture the essence of Tauranga’s backbone belief in ‘live, work and play’. Outdoor flow is an integral element at Vantage.
“The lower levels enjoy vibrant urban views over the Tauranga CBD while the upper apartments boast some of the best views of Mount Maunganui, the harbour and beyond,” he says.
