About Us


We challenged ourselves by asking why Auckland’s inner-city living couldn’t have the best of both worlds. Uber- cool living contrasted with an urban oasis, SugarTree is a unique, multi-faceted development that brings together apartments, retail, entertainment and workspace. It is a place for people to live, work, play and relax, set in the very heart of one of the Southern Hemisphere’s fastest growing cities.

An Expert Team

The successful team behind SugarTree Prima have come together again to bring you SugarTree Altro. Led by developers Wayne Allen, Darren Brown and The Lily Investment Group. SugarTree Altro harnesses the outstanding capabilities of leading companies such as Kalmar Construction, Babbage Consultants, Greenstone Group and WT Partnership to give you unparalleled confidence in the delivery of the Altro project.

An Urban Oasis

SugarTree’s oasis spaces give you escape from the frenetic pace of a city lifestyle. Access the peace of being surrounded by lush, green foliage, the pure joy of feeling grass underfoot. SugarTree is centered around an immaculate courtyard – a landscaped area with stately trees and sculptural water features. Green spaces are scattered throughout the development, so you can find your favourite place – your very own secret garden.

Rooftop Lounge

Indulge in the rooftop views from your local café (within Altro) overlooking the harbour, the perfect way to start your morning.

Living In Style

Each apartment has been designed to maximise views and living space. Generous windows bathe the apartments in natural light by day and surround them in the city lights by night. North facing apartment’s captures premium harbour views while west facing balconies enjoy views of our SugarTree landscaped gardens – a unique find in the city.

Urban Village

SugarTree has embraced community living in such a central location offering more than a one dimensional development. Endless choices for guests and residents. SugarTree’s expert design will create a sophisticated urban community with retail on the ground level and apartments above. Boutique stores, bars, eateries and creative double stud height retail and commercial spaces with a central courtyard walkway from Union Street to Nelson Street. Amenities already include popular franchises such as and Pepitos Spanish Tapas bar.

The Best of Both Worlds

SugarTree neatly bridges the fringe suburbs of Ponsonby, Grey Lynn and Freemans Bay with the hub of the inner city.  You’re at the very heart of it – but in a way that allows you to escape, pause and take a breath. Here, you can easily enjoy all that these neighbourhoods have to offer. Whether it’s joining friends down at the vibrant waterfront, stocking up on the latest in art and design at the Victoria Park Markets, treating yourself to the latest fashions in Ponsonby or going for a walk through Western Park, SugarTree puts you right at the heart of the best Auckland has to offer.



SugarTree grows through three development phases, from the planting of a tiny seed at the launch of the project, right through to an exciting, three building destination. Three buildings form a community of high-quality, freehold apartments around an urban enclave of specialty stores, boutique cafes, bars and eateries and creative work/live spaces.

A highly developed, expert approach to considered urban design will result in a secure, vibrant community located on the edge of Auckland’s CBD, while SugarTree’s building manager safeguards the development, giving residents 24/7 peace of mind.
