Located in central Thorndon, the George is a conversion of an existing industrial building into 24 high quality apartments.
The building has been transformed into a contemporary urban environment. It surrounds a large private garden with a tranquil water feature that meanders through the park. Considerable design attention has been given to transforming the existing large scale building so that it will better relate to its surrounding residential context.
The apartments range from single bedroom, through to three bedrooms. The living areas include a kitchen and bedroom generally on a mezzanine floor with high stud and a south facing industrial style clerestory roof.
The spaces are generous and have pleasant outlooks to Tinakori hill, or into a substantial landscaped courtyard. Enclosed carparking into a central garage provides a carpark for each apartment together with internal access.
The George provides the very best of contemporary urban living in the heart of Thorndon.
