Silo Apartments

An Echo Of Auckland Past.

Just down the ridge from the Auckland University clock tower, tucked betwen the legal district and the bustling harbour side, lies one of Auckland city’s original residential precincts.

It’s network of curving streets retain much of their original character and are home to a number of small apartment blocks of varying architectural styles, constructed here in the early to mid 20th century.

The Silo is a 130 unit development constructed inside the old Northern Roller Mills grain silo. The developers have keep the facade and some of the original features.

The Apartments

The building comprises predominantly studio apartments most of which have their own carparks (a great feature when carparks in the CBD are so sought after).

The apartments are well appointed and have generous balconies, which give a superb indoor/outdoor flow. The Silo is on the edge of Emily park and apartments that face this side enjoy a green outlook. Views on the other side include a cityscape and higher up apartments often have seaviews.


Gym, sauna, roof garden and large lounge area.


Great Location

The front area of the building is very well-designed with a stunning fountain just in front of the entry, surrounded by a very small garden with lovely plants, trees and flowers. The letter boxes are installed in this area, too. The carefully organized appearance continues in the entrance lobby, which is designed with bright tiles and crème coloured walls. This area is always in a very clean condition.

The Silo Apartments have a generous and comfortable entertaining area outside where you will find several wooden bench chairs and a beautiful garden area. There is also a full-sized chess game for residents to play on. The high security of the building is guaranteed by a huge gate in the front of the entry area, and as also the fact that residents can get access into the entrance lobby and their apartments only with a swipe card.

Although the Silo Apartments is located in a very quiet environment, it is at the same time very centrally situated, with a close proximity to the university and the Viaduct, the High Street precinct, the Civic Theater and some beautiful parks. The numerous shops, cafes and restaurants in Queen Street are only minutes away. It takes you a few minutes by car to get to the motorways and the next bus station is just around the corner.
