New urban apartment living in Milford Village

The latest development to grace the Milford skyline, the Omana Apartment complex, is a collaboration between award-winning Context Architects and Metro Property.

Once complete, this unique and innovative building will comprise 81 one, two and three-bedroom residences, all designed with functionality and liveability in mind, and offering a fusion of urban sophistication and a chic beach village lifestyle.

With a bold contemporary façade of solid concrete with aluminium joinery and timber accents, this development has been thoughtfully considered and features a high level of internal and external construction and modern fittings and fixtures. A stunning atrium design with natural light welcomes you and provides ventilation to all bedrooms throughout the building with each apartment having their own covered balcony.

All of the west facing (and some of the north facing) two-bedroom apartments feature a butler’s pantry, an ensuite bathroom, a walk-in wardrobe, and an additional office space. The three-bedroom apartments are orientated west or north-west, providing spectacular views over Wairau Creek Reserve and beyond.

Context Architects create inspiring high-performance buildings that simply enhance peoples' lives by creating living spaces that maximise wellbeing, a sense of community and importantly stand the test of time. And a unique feature of this development is the rooftop terrace with shared facilities to evoke a sense of community. There is plenty of space for all to enjoy with a covered outdoor kitchen and bar, barbeque areas, lounging spaces, fruit and vegetable gardens, a gym, and a children’s play area. All apartments have access to communal rooftop facilities, 24/7 onsite management, an assisted living station, and secure access underground car parking.

Omana appeals to all ages and is not restricted to any age group, but a well thought through feature of the building is that it also offers a great alternative for retirees not wanting to move into a retirement home; having all the advantages of onsite assisted living care and the benefit of capital gain.

With the Milford Shopping Centre on your doorstep, including New World and Countdown supermarkets, you will be in walking distance to Milford’s fashion precinct and have access to quality shopping like no other. Not only fashion, but seconds away from the lively well-known cafes, restaurants and bars in the area. Plus, Omana is only a 10-minute walk to Milford Beach.

This enticing development is accessible to sought-after schools including Milford Primary School, Westlake Boys High School, and Westlake Girls High School. In close proximity to the local amenities such as North Shore Hospital and recreational areas, it offers an enviable lifestyle in a most convenient central North Shore location. With an estimated completion date of 2021, the time to act is now!
