Immediately identifiable on the Auckland skyline, the statuesque ‘Metropolis’ is a tour de force of New York styling – from the ziggurat roof to the custom-made metalwork used throughout. Accommodating more than 300 apartments of increasing quality and scale, the 42 storey tower sits atop a limestone-clad podium which houses luxurious lobbies, gymnasium, pool, and retail.
