Open Weekend
The Botanic Silverdale had an eventful weekend recently, as the sales team organised an open day to celebrate the unveiling of the first show home in the Nikau apartments, marking an exciting milestone in the development. The event spanned two days and attracted a large number of visitors, keeping both the sales team and the Mama's Donuts team busy throughout.

A very successful day with a vibrant atmosphere as the public arrived to view both our first completed apartment, and our recently completed Eastern Villa’s show home. Well done to everyone involved.

The Botanic Eastern Villas
With the first stage of The Botanic Silverdale’s villas being completed in the first half of 2022, development works have been underway to progress and deliver the Eastern Villas stage at the Village. This stage consists of 43 Independent Living Units with a mix of individual freestanding villas and two-level split-living units.

The recent completion of one of the sub-stages marks the addition of another typology in The Botanic Village and will soon house the newest residents of this growing community. We can’t wait to see the remainder of this overall stage progress and fill up with more residents!

Annual Retreat
Two weeks ago, we held our annual Matvin and MAKO staff retreat on Waiheke Island for our group to come together and review the year that has passed. This is the fifth and largest retreat that we have held as a business and it provided a great chance for the team to review business processes and find new efficiencies as well as review completed developments, those that are in the pipeline and those that have commenced, to find improvements in the way we source and deliver investments as a development and construction business.

Not only did the retreat provide a chance for staff to contribute to the business review and enhancement process, but it also provided an opportunity for everyone to gather in a social setting over a couple of days.

While away, the team also enjoyed a great day out at the Waiheke Bowls Club, with a few of our MAKO Commercial team members taking out the tournament!

The Office Pods are now home to our tenants Signature Homes Ltd, Ray White, The Planning Collective Ltd and Hall Surveying. We could not be happier as to how these Office Pods have turned out!

Those who keenly follow our page will know we are actively involved in the Silverdale development scene. We've made a lot of posts about the individual projects we have completed in this area, but its time we gave you a proper overview to show the scale of development taking place. Matvin Group has master-planned what was originally a 20,000m2+ site and has so far delivered 4 of the 8 master-planned projects, with the 5th about to start in Q1 January 2022. We are absolutely stoked as to how this site has turned out and we can't wait for MAKO Commercial to begin on the next addition! Also worthy of a mention is The Botanic site which is just around the corner from this precinct!
