The Greenhouse open homes start this weekend, Sat/Sun from 2-3pm at 20 Williamson Avenue, Grey Lynn. Come and see us!

Introducing Toi, a rather special new apartment building coming to Pt Chev.

It will be an instant Tāmaki Makaurau landmark, a seven-storey sentinel of vibrant, verdant green, the colour of fresh harakeke (flax). Subtle shifts of glaze — and a shimmering fine grain pattern — will adorn its brick walls, a look inspired by the triangular tukutuku panels of Hotunui, the great Ngāti Maru wharenui that lives at Auckland Museum. 

The latest instalment in the Marutūāhu-Ockham story, Toi is unmistakeably of Aotearoa. The well-known meaning of the name in te reo rangatira is art or knowledge, with additional – and resonant – layers of meaning being point, summit, indigenous or origin. Associations that are amply evident within this beautiful whare.

Geographically blessed, Toi is nestled in between Pt Chev and Mt Albert, in easy ‘scenting’ range of Daily Bread, and within carousing proximity of Bar Martin. It’s a short stroll to two train stations, while the Northwestern cycleway is on your doorstep, the CBD just a 10-minute e-bike whizz away.

With 65 apartments in a range of studios, one, two and three bedroom options, as well as a residents’ lounge, Toi is your ticket to an super-connected city lifestyle. But there’s something extra special about this one. Toi is the first building, the foundation stone of a new suburb, an entirely new community called Maungārongo. Read on!

Construction underway, completion expected Q4 2025.

Style and substance

Instantly recognisable, Toi is a striking refinement of the distinctly residential ‘look’ that has evolved over our 21 developments so far. Its walls are brick – a custom-coloured, verdant green inspired by the harakeke.

It looks fabulous – style and substance we like to think – though there’s more to this than mere aesthetics. Says Ockham’s Mark Todd: “It’s an essential design principle we follow: we want our buildings to age gracefully with minimal ongoing costs. I believe developers have an ethical obligation to build with durable materials so residents are spared maintenance work.”

Location

Toi sits 400m from Pt Chev Village, home to one of busiest bus routes in the city and, very possibly, its finest bread – the warm, golden sourdough deliciousness of Daily Bread. It’s less than a kilometre from the eclectic buzz of Mt Albert Shops with its hilariously duelling BBQ noodle houses. It’s a short walk from the Mt Albert and Baldwin Ave train stations, while the Northwestern cycleway zooms by your door.

Here lieth the best backyard in the city! Stroll down Pt Chev Road, past a French-inspired café cluster, past Pt Chev Beach Café with its heavenly gelato, and cool off at Auckland’s calmest, most zen family beach. Collect your thoughts with a wander around Western Springs or head straight to the tranquil inner-city wilderness of Te Auaunga / Oakley Creek with its mesmeric six-metre waterfall. In the heart of the isthmus, right among the action, this is simply a wonderful place to live...
