Complex brings village life to the city By JANIE SMITH City village: Developer Douglas Rikard-Bell with a model of the Rhubarb Lane complex. Photo: JASON OXENHAM A taste of village life is coming to the city. Work will soon be under way on a new development in Victoria Quarter which will see architecturally designed apartment buildings and boutique shops replace old warehouses and a carpark. Developer Douglas Rikard- Bell says the history of the property, which was part of the city's main industrial area, interests him. It's not a trendy new area. It has a strong, incredible soul. It was strong even in Maori trading days.'' Mr Rikard-Bell says he challenged the Auckland city and regional councils to come up with a new development control plan for the area that would allow for harmony in the interaction between working, living and playing. A plan was developed for the precinct, which Mr Rikard-Bell calls the lower west side'' of the city. The development, called Rhubarb Lane, will be a vil- lage in Victoria Quarter with cobbled streets, six apart- ment buildings and a range of retail stores. The project was put on hold during the recession but got under way again with the improving economy. The apartments have free- hold titles which means they will be individually owned. Mr Rikard-Bell invited six high-profile architects to work with him, giving them the same brief to interpret in their own way for each of the apartment buildings. They include Ian Moore, Pip Cheshire and Richard Goldie. The result is that each building has its own style, while still offering the same kind of spaces. They all have mezzanines and a giant window with Juliet balconies.'' One building, called Tattoo, will feature a facade of louvres which will show an artwork covering the side of the building when closed. The spaces can be used as living or working space and are available in different sizes. Mr Rikard-Bell wants the development to be home to everyone from singles to families. At no point are we just doing this for rich 30-somethings. That's not community.'' Most of the retail spaces in the village have been leased and the businesses will include a fruit and vegetable store, bakery, cheese shop, chocolate shop and florist, all in keeping with the village feel. A park will feature an out- door movie screen. The consents are in place and construction is planned to start around the Christ- mas period. Mr Rikard-Bell says sales are going well and Rhubarb Lane is being marketed by Multiplex Living. See www.multiplexliving.com or phone 309-2524 for more information.
