Orakei Train Station in the Auckland
suburb of Orakei is located on the Eastern Line of the Auckland railway network. It has an island platform layout and can be reached by an overbridge from Orakei Road. It is backed by a carpark and a shopping complex.The Redwood development group is currently (2008) planning to redevelop the area around the train station substantially.
A plan with several skyscraper-style apartment buildings (and in turn providing substantial green space and waterfront access to the public) did meet with substantial local protest. A more scaled-back plan was then proposed which limits the buildings to six storeys and is currently being discussed. It would retain public access and amenities.
