The signs of a place “on the rise”
You’ve probably seen the distinctive signs marking the Uptown precinct.
Some of Auckland’s most famous roads lead to the area. We’re up the top of Khyber Pass, Symonds St, Mt Eden Road, New North Road and Newton Rd. The city’s highest point is the top of Mt Eden, so almost all the views from Uptown’s apartments are fairly majestic.
So it’s pretty accurate to claim, in a physical sense, that Uptown is on the rise. But it’s also true that with so much going on in the area that as a place to work and live, Uptown is clearly on the ascendancy.
The completion of the City Rail project and the redevelopment of Mt Eden station will mean passengers will be able to travel to Britomart in ten minutes. That will be the catalyst to generate a new wave of people and businesses to make Uptown their home.
