Such is the demand for apartments in Wellington City’s newest and safest development that 85 of the 120 residences already have sold or are under offer. Victoria Lane Apartments, at 161 Victoria St, will set a new standard in downtown living and residential seismic resilience when completed in mid-late 2022.
“What Victoria Lane Apartments offer in terms of not only seismic safety but also design, specification, views and location make it a unique residential environment,” Willis Bond & Co director David McGuinness says.
An outstanding location, unrivalled safety, smart design and an uncompromising standard of finish are key attributes of Willis Bond & Co’s new Victoria Lane Apartments development, which is set to be built at 161 Victoria Street.
Designed by Athfield Architects, it will be Wellington’s first base-isolated apartment building and will deliver a level of seismic safety unlike any other apartment building in the city.
Apartments are now selling in Willis Bond & Co’s Victoria Lane Apartments, the capital’s first and only base-isolated apartment development.
The building’s structural engineers, Dunning Thornton Consultants, say that the development is unique for Wellington as the first multi storey apartment building designed to withstand a one in-a-thousand-year earthquake.
Apartments in a groundbreaking central Wellington development designed to withstand a once-in-a-millennium earthquake are selling from $665,000.
Victoria Lane Apartments, at 161 Victoria St, will be the capital’s first base-isolated apartment building.
Developers at Willis Bond & Co are seeking resource consent to build Wellington's first base-isolated apartment building on Victoria Street.
An 120-apartment development, that will be called the Victoria Lane Apartments will be built over the top of the former Farmers' building, next to the Te Auaha performing arts campus.
