Avondale Real Estate
With more than $600 million in developments planned over the next 15 years, Avondale is considered by many to be Auckland’s next up-and-coming suburb. Quoting an Ockham Residential spokesman responsible for some of the developments in the area, Stuff.co.nz describes Avondale as “…a suburb of energy, diversity and vivacity. A suburb of soul…”
Avondale also has a range of local schooling options available, excellent proximity to regular public transport and is well connected to the rest of Auckland - the New North Rd bus route is one of Auckland’s busiest and is constantly being improved.
Avondale is well known for its community spirit and over recent time has grown enormously in popularity. Features unique to Avondale include the decades-old community hub that is Avondale Markets, a magnet for people from the rest of the city and visitors to buy food and other goods. Avondale has other excellent community-focussed spaces including the Avondale library and community centre. Avondale residents also proudly tend the community gardens that promote sustainable gardening and social cohesion for the neighbourhood.
Avondale is also famous for its racecourse and the Avondale Jockey Club. The racecourse area also contains netball courts and sports fields for rugby league, soccer and cricket. Avondale has plenty of other green spaces for lovers of the outdoors including the Memorial Park and Central Reserve.
For movie and music lovers, Avondale is also home to the Hollywood Cinema. A majestic theatre built in 1915, this neoclassical building is one of Auckland’s gems. Used originally as the Town Hall, the Hollywood is the oldest cinema in New Zealand.
