Originally this project was earmarked for a Commercial/Industrial development but with the collapse of the markets in 2007, commercial projects were no longer in demand. Over a period of years the land was eventually rezoned as residential paving the way for Lime Living.
This new apartment development comprises four buildings ranging from five to six storeys and will include 95 apartments in total when complete. Paved common areas and subtropical plantings between the buildings creates a sense of spaciousness and community. Lime Living is all about having plenty of everything you need – space, light, fresh air and a design with its sense of style.
The colour palette was inspired by the project’s name Lime Living, which led to citrus colours being selected and this will carry over to further buildings as they are completed. Resene X-200 weathertight membrane tinted to Resene Sea Fog was chosen for exterior rendered walls, while feature panels were finished in Resene Lumbersider in bold hues of Resene Lucky, Resene Bullseye and Resene Impromptu.
Both the interior design and the exterior colourways and plantings are designed to reinforce the vision that Lime Living will always be a pleasure to come home to.
