Meadowbank’s accessible location in Eastern Auckland has seen it play host to waves of construction from the 30’s to the 90’s, resulting in a charming and character filled range of New Zealand’s architectural styles. Add great schools, fantastic transport links, a strong community spirit and an array of local amenities and you have Meadowbank, one of Auckland’s most desirable neighbourhoods.
Great transport options make for great liveability, a key focus for Ockham Residential. Koa Flats is perfectly located to access Auckland’s growing range of transport options.
The Meadowbank Train Station is a five minute walk away. Door to door, you can be in Britomart in just 20 minutes.
A pedestrian link runs from the end of Koa Street to the Meadowbank Road shops, where buses run to the city via Remuera (every 10 minutes), Newmarket (every 15 minutes) and Parnell (every 30 minutes).
By Cycle & By Foot
Auckland continues to invest in its shared pathway network and Koa Flats is ideally situated to take advantage of this growing amenity. Te Ara Ki Uta Ki Tai, the path of sea and water, will provide a pedestrian and cycle link from Glen Innes to the CBD via Tamaki Drive. The boardwalk across the Orakei Basin connects to Orakei Bay Village, and construction / consultation is underway on the rest of the route. By boardwalk you can be in Orakei Bay Village for brunch or dinner in 20 minutes.
Supermarkets & Shopping Malls
For your boutique shopping needs, Farro is handy at Orakei Bay Village, while Eastridge Shopping Centre is just a five minute drive from Koa Flats. Eastridge boasts a supermarket, pharmacy, post shop, bank and more.
Parks & Playtime
The Orakei Basin Walkway is a great way to stay active. This 3km walk leads you around the stunning Orakei Basin crater, through small patches of bush and high up onto the ridge for great views of our city.
Tahapa Reserve is just at the end of Koa Street. This small lush park currently houses a basketball court with further improvements planned as Te Ara Ki Uta Ki Tai is completed.
Bonnie Brae Reserve is a five minute walk away and has a great children’s playground.
