CHURTON PARK VILLAGE

 

CHURTON PARK VILLAGE

 

Sitting on the prominent corner of Westchester Drive and Lakewood Avenue the newly constructed Churton Park Village provides a much needed retail and community hub to the suburb of Churton Park. Already occupied by a wide mix of tenancies including a New World supermarket, pharmacy, offices, vet, hairdresser, and takeaway restaurant, the shopping centre is arranged as a cluster of buildings around a landscaped carpark. Building forms and materials are familiar and composed in a way that provides visual interest, variety of spaces and individual identity for tenancies. The sloping topography has been used to mitigate the bulk of the larger building blocks and provide a human suburban scale to the development.

Pedestrian links have been created through and around the site that connect to public transport. The carpark at the centre of the development is broken up with multiple crossing points and landscaped areas able to be sectioned off for community activities such as markets or car boot sales.

The masterplanning of the site allows for the staged growth of the Village and the proposed medium density housing that surrounds it.

 

Churton Park Retail Village was awarded silver in the 2014 New Zealand Commercial Project Awards in the Retail Category.
