New MIT Train Station Campus
The new $250m Manukau Institute of technology building is emerging above the new Manukau train station.
The campus building, with 10,000 square metres of floor space, will cater initially for 1500 full time equivalent students. The campus is planned to eventually cover a three hectare area and have 25,000 students.
It will give a much needed boost to the Manukau service and a taste of a new era where trains and tertiary campus are linked- the newly announced Auckland University campus in the old Lion Brewery area in Khyber Pass Road will give a similar boost to patronage of the neighbouring Grafton station.
Architects Warren & Manhoney have an image of the finished building on their site.
