181 Great South Road

Location: Takanini

Completed 30 years ago, this multi-tenanted industrial, retail and office complex set a new trend at the time for South Auckland commercial property. Located in an industrial zone occupied by simple, stand alone, small factories, this mixed use development set a next perspective for property development along the Takanini Straight industrial zone.

There were significant site issues of underwater streams and boggy peat (unforeseen by isolated geo-tech sampling) but these were addressed and overcome.

“Our company had the good fortune to work with Fraser Heaven and Newhaven Development on a major (180 unit) residential project at Botany Town Centre during 2002 to 2005.

Fraser had a vision and he was always striving to improve on the standard and delivery of each stage of the project. He understood our requirements as the main contractor, including prompt payment, good documentation and the need to employ experienced subcontractors. We would have no hesitation in undertaking future work with Fraser and Newhaven Development.”
