NAME:

Aitken Tce was named after prominent Auckland businessman William Aitken (Auckland Libraries, n.d.; Davenport, 1990, p.12).

DESCRIPTION:

Aitken Ave runs south west from the end of Bright St to King St.

Alexander St, Buchanan St, Richbourne St and Hesketh St run off it. Mostyn St bisects it.

The north east boundary of Mt Albert runs along the centre of Alexander St, so the extreme eastern section of Aitken Tce lies outside Mt Albert.

On the north side in Mt Albert lie numbers 5 to 37. On the south side lie numbers 10 to 62.

1937: “described as being 26 chains long, based in Kingsland, with 1 business premises and 49 residences. It was one of the first named streets in the area, with the district known locally as Glenmore.” (Auckland Libraries, n.d.).
