A penthouse in Hampton Court, the nearly 90-year-old apartment block on the corner of Federal St & Wellesley St West, was passed in at Bayleys’ auction on Wednesday without a bid.
An apartment in the George Court building on Karangahape Rd (pictured), a former department store also in its 90s, was sold under the hammer at Bayleys’ Remuera auction on Thursday. It’s across the street from the new K Rd city rail link station under construction, and also has potential immediately on the other side for windows to be blocked after consent was granted in 2015 to Northern Escapes Ltd (Ben Cook) for a 10-storey 35m development comprising retail, office & apartments.
