With its prime position on the corner of Great North Rd and Buscomb Avenue, the building will also house three retails spaces, vehicle access to the car stacker and a central lobby providing access to its 67 apartments above.

HMOA Auckland director Matt Pearson says the form of the building is generated from its strong base from levels 1–10. The upper levels will feature striking white-painted, concrete fins and glass cladding and are recessed to allow them to sit lightly on the base.
