Location: 101 Atkinson Ave, Otahuhu, Auckland
Through a close working relationship with Restaurant Brands, Argyle Estates located a site in Otahuhu to assist them with their expansion of their Carl’s Junior restaurant network. The site washome to the large two storey Otahuhu WorkingMens Club and RSA, which was looking to relocate and downsize.
Argyle saw the not-so-obvious opportunity to demolish the entire building, to create a site large enough for a drive-thru restaurant. With some clever design work from the Restaurant Brands architecture team, a layout was agreed and a resource consent granted.
A large mural along the southern street front makes the building an icon within Otahuhu and a clean modern piece of architecture that is prominent in its corner location. The project was sold to a local investor upon completion.
