It doesn’t seem that long since the tower crane was first installed, but enormous changes have occurred since it first started lifting materials on to the site. The crane has now been dismantled and taken away, one of the largest milestones towards completing Outlook and it was captivating to see the specialist team in action.
Work is well underway and on track inside the three buildings at Outlook Mission Bay, so we wanted to highlight what’s happening on the outside, the surrounding gardens and the pavilion.
As designers and developer, we are passionate about the little things. The brushmarks on a beautiful painting. The feel and texture of the leather.
But also just how well something actually works. How easy was it to get in the door with the groceries? Is there enough room to do the laundry without it spilling out into the hallway? Is there a power point for the phone charger?
We’re now weather-tight!
With the roof in place before Christmas (photo on right), the Clearwater Construction team have worked hard with the sub-contractors to get all of the windows and doors installed to make the building fully weather-tight. A great milestone to achieve before recent rain!
They say nothing but a brick, wood-fuelled oven can seal in the authentic flavour of a true Neapolitan pizza. Lucky then for the residents of Outlook Mission Bay with Dante’s Pizzeria opening just across the road at the stylish new ‘Eatery at Eastridge’.
The pizzas are cooked in a brick oven, in this case, a bright red tile mosaic version (and the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere), for just 90 seconds or less. They use only the best Italian and freshest NZ ingredients to create some of the finest pizzas available in Auckland!
And there’s the roof!
It was fantastic timing to have the roof installed on the main tower just before the holidays started. This means that the tower has now reached full-height and it won’t be long now until the building is fully enclosed.
After the rain around Christmas day, this summer stretch in Auckland has been stunning.
We’ve been talking with a few people who will be moving into Outlook later this year about their summer rituals. For many, the summer break means getting away from home and enjoying the beach house, spending time in the sun and relaxing with friends and family.
Regardless of what you do while you’re away, with a conventional house, getting away means a list of several other ‘rituals’ that we’d all like to avoid.
Our Outlook purchasers can stop reading now, but if you’ve not yet decided to move into a community like Outlook Mission Bay, here are 7 things you’ll need to have on your ‘to do’ list before you pack up and head out next summer.
It’s wonderful to gather loved ones around the table this holiday season.
Whether a light meal before heading off to the beach or a full table spread with all the trimmings, the kitchen plays a pivotal role in creating these memories.
Will your kitchen be up to the task?
It’s not long until the apartments will start to have the interior finishes installed. The Clearwater Construction team continue to make great progress and if you live locally we’re sure you will have noticed the scale of the buildings increasing dramatically over the past few months.
We’re eager to share with you how one of our couples were able to secure their dream apartment at Outlook Mission Bay without needing to sell their own home to provide a cash deposit.
