A modern, creative office unit for sale in a sought-after Auckland city fringe location would suit owner-occupiers seeking a charming new space with excellent transport access.

Located just off Karangahape Road, the 170sq m stratum-in-freehold and second-level property has a commanding position on the intersection of Pitt and Hopetoun Sts.

The area is one of the main links between the inner city and popular Ponsonby.

Colliers International has been exclusively appointed to market the unit for sale by auction on Wednesday November 15, unless sold earlier.

Marketing brokers Simon Felton and Tony Allsop say the office is available with vacant possession, making it ideal for owner-occupiers seeking a space to move into now.

“Previously occupied by web design company Brownpaperbag, and before that Nova Model Agency, this modern, well-appointed office space is ideally suited to occupiers in the creative industries,” Felton says.

“Boutique businesses in the likes of the marketing, advertising, design, software, communications, legal and accounting sectors will not want to miss this chance to set up an ideal new base on the city fringe.”

Felton says the Level 2 unit, part of the Hopetoun Delta complex, is also suited to apartment conversion.

“The wider Hopetoun Delta complex has a sophisticated mix of apartment, office and retail accommodation,” he says.

“It is a short walk from Myers Park and the numerous restaurant and bar offerings that line Karangahape Rd – a big drawcard for residential and office occupiers alike.

“The mostly north-facing unit benefits from abundant natural light, and has views over tree-lined Vincent St, towards the Sky Tower.”

Felton says the unit comes with one secure covered car park.

“It is superbly positioned to make the most of the city’s transport amenities,” he says.

“The major CBD motorway on-ramps are just down the road, giving convenient vehicle accessibility.

“Substantial on road parking is available down Vincent St, Pitt St, Greys Ave and Beresford St.

“The area is also well-serviced by public transport, and is only a short walk from the City Rail Link’s planned Pitt Street entrance to the Karangahape Station, which is to be built on adjacent Mercury Lane.”

Allsop says the Hopetoun Delta complex was developed by Martin Kells Developments.

“Situated on a 3255sq m site, the complex is predominantly three levels, with an additional level above the intersection of Pitt St and Hopetoun St.

“The development comprises 40 principal units, with additional car parks as accessory units.

“In the near future, elegant ‘Hopetoun Delta’ lettering will be installed on the top level of the complex above the intersection. This is sure to help the positioning of the complex moving forward.”

The building is zoned Business City Centre, which is among the most permissive under the Auckland Unitary Plan.
