Ideally situated in the heart of cosmopolitan, chic Newmarket, The James is in close proximity to Auckland’s best education, shopping and a host of other amenities.

Double grammar zoned, The James is just a few minutes walk to Auckland Grammar School, and within easy access of Epsom Girls Grammar, as well as a number of other schools in the area.

The James is directly across the road from the University of Auckland Newmarket Campus, and a short walk to the University of Auckland medical campus in Grafton. Auckland, Mercy, and Starship Hospitals are all within walking distance. Motorway on ramps to northern, southern and western motorways are a 3 minute drive away. The James has two bus stops leading in both directions directly outside the building, and Grafton Train Station is less than a 3 minute walk.
