Cargill Court Apartments (1973)

These Residential Apartments were designed by our founding architect Ted McCoy in 1973. The building was documented for construction in 1974 and completed in 1978. Cargill Court was the first block of 'Unit Titled' flats built in Dunedin.

These apartments were built as premium accommodation for small families/couples, wanting apartment style living close to the Dunedin CBD. The apartments are just above the CBD, situated on the corner of Cargill and Arthur Street, directly in front of Otago Boys High School. The elevated site has panoramic views of Dunedin City, Harbour and the surrounding Hills and Peninsula. 

The building is 5 stories high and home to 13 apartments. 2 of which are 'Penthouse' units with a roof top balcony. The apartments are a combination of 1 and 2 bedrooms.

Citation

'Built in the 1970s using single block construction, this low-rise apartment tower, with its carefully proportioned building form and façade elements, respects and enhances the built fabric of the surrounding inner suburb. Surprisingly, in spite of advances in living arrangements, thermal and energy efficient technologies, and construction techniques, the design remains unaltered - a testament to its continuing liveability and attractive aesthetic. With its low entry foyer, rooftop terrace for all residents, corner bay windows, and use of 'honest' materials, this building constitutes a fine example of the signature vocabulary of the architects.'
