Kingsland's Gateway Marker

QR codes and a mobile website developed by AI support Kingsland's new Gateway Marker, unveiled earlier this week. 

In a suburb known for its creative funky vibe it is perhaps no surprise Kingsland is leading the way with a signpost that reflects the artistic nature of this upcoming area.

While many suburbs have no signage at all, Kingsland has installed a 5 metre high grit-blasted curved steel structure at the entrance to the village.

Funded by an Auckland Council SLIP grant of $20,000 through Albert-Eden Local Board, the brief was to create a sense of arrival for both pedestrians and motorists.

"We are really grateful the Council had the vision to allow Kingsland the chance to make a bold statement about our identity", says Christine Foley, Kingsland Business Society Manager.
