Work is well under way on the subsantial renovation/refurbishment of a much loved Remuera building. 411-413 Remuera Road has been the workplace of many Remuera businesses and formerly the site of the original Remuera Public Library (1915).
Resource Consent was granted on 23rd May 2016 and Stage One of three Building Consents on 15th July 2016. While the building was in a dubious state of structural repair, the restoration will be in keeping with its 1929 architectural look and feel. Megan Jaffe Real Estate Ltd will be located in this tasteful three storey restoration and build.
Noise, dust and traffic management plans have been discussed and approved by Auckland Council and every effort will be made on a daily basis to minimise inconvenience for store owners and shoppers. All neighbours are respected and valued and will continue to be consulted and updated.
Haydn + Rollett have been involved with the construction industry since 1946 and have a solid reputation for excellence. More recently they undertook the impressive refurbishment of the historic warehouse building, home for Saatchi & Saatchi on The Strand, Parnell.
The builders have hand picked their best Project Manager and Site Foreman to oversee the project on a daily basis. Demolition is well underway and expected to be completed by the end of August. Upcoming milestones include ground works, the establishment of a crane and mid-September, the commencement of piling. The target practical completion date is late April 2017.
Ray White Remuera is the No. 1 Office for the Company in the world, and recently received the Prestige Award from the Real Estate Institute of NZ. The new premises will be proudly occupied by Megan Jaffe and her team as the flagship Ray White business for many years to come.
