Symphony strikes an America's Cup chord

Symphony Group hopes to capitalise on the Auld Mug victory with the launch of a new development in the heart of the Viaduct Basin in June.

The development would be mixed use residential, retail, and office space in nine buildings.

The central feature is a circular building containing retail space on the ground floor with office and then residential space above.

The circular building sits in the centre of a city block and would be surrounded by another eight individually designed residential buildings, with a small amount of retail to satisfy zoning requirements.

The residential buildings would form the outer perimeter of what Symphony director Chris Minty described as a walled city. With the circular building at its centre, the space between would contain landscaped gardens for residents.

Symphony was applying for resource consents and had worked hard to deliver a balance of security and privacy right in the middle of the action in the Viaduct Basin, Mr Minty said.
