From the Resene News – issue 1/2006

Urbanite - Citta apartments

A stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of Queen Street, the Citta Apartments on the crest of Upper Symonds Street and Khyber Pass successfully meld urban location, convenience and modern, stylish design and finishing. Ground floor retail provides a shopfront to the project and protects residents from the passing vehicular and foot traffic while giving them a quick stop shopping option, while the enclosed courtyard is a quiet haven from the busy city.

Citta Apartments

The building design blends heritage detailing with solid masonry and modern comfort. The tilt slab exterior is finished in Resene Concrete Primer followed by two topcoats of Resene X-200 weathertight membrane in a range of 10 custom colours including a dark green not usually seen in this finish. A 10 year waterproofing guarantee on the Resene X-200 finished surfaces and seven year colourfastness guarantee on the dark green provides reassurance to current and prospective owners.

With shopping at their door, plus restaurants and entertainment just an easy walk away, residents can throw away the car keys and let their feet do the walking.
