In November of 2020, Director Simon Taylor wrote a piece breaking down the costs that go into the purchase of a new apartment. Given what has happened in the market since then, he thought it very timely to revisit this article and re-run the numbers.
OneRoof Goes on Safari
OneRoof took the time to view our Newmarket Residences development last week, as well as an interview with our Senior Development Manager/Director Josh Van Veen. Click the link below to read the full article.
Newmarket - Flying High
The development is well and truly above the motorway now – The Newmarket team are absolutely flying through the construction of each building. Building C only has 1 more floor to pour then we are onto the roof. Façade is going up very quickly – up to Level 3 now. Internal partitions are well advanced up to level 3, plasterboard has begun. Building B is not far behind C, with only 1 more slab pour remaining. Partitions have begun internally, with the façade up to level 2. Building A basements are all complete with steelwork progressing up to level 2. Podium outdoor space will start to take shape over the next few weeks. 3 out of 4 building consents are approved to date with the final building consent almost uplifted.
This Development has a Transitional Exemption Certificate (Overseas Buyers can purchase our residential units and live there!) There are now 23 Residential Units, 1 V.A Unit & 7 Storage Units available for sale!

Safari Family Spotlight
Family is everything! Which is why Safari Group is such a tight knit group – we see our colleagues as ‘extended family’. To get an insight into the Safari Group team we thought we’d showcase a staff member each month, starting with…
Role at Safari Group
As the Development Coordinator I work across all of our current and future projects scheduling the finishes such as flooring and paint colours for the hotel and residential units. A large part of my job is the liaising, organising and ordering of all the furniture items for each development through our many supplier.
I also coordinate many of the admin tasks needed at the head office such as fleet vehicles, computer-ware and our in house social and education events.
What you love about what you do
I love how varied my work is, no day is ever the same! I especially enjoy the creative side of my role by getting involved with the different colours, finishes and design selections.
What you couldn’t live without
Insulin. Haha, is that too on the nose? A coffee in the morning, a wine on a Friday evening and the support of my husband.
Other Interesting Things you’re up to
I am currently completing a Diploma in Interior Design outside of work which has not only been incredibly fun, but is also providing a more informed knowledge of what I am currently doing in my role at Safari Group.
