Housing New Zealand is investing $48.5 million to build 145 new social housing units across five sites in Wellington City.
This is a significant building programme that will drive a transformation of Housing New Zealand’s Wellington housing stock, creating a portfolio of modern and fit-for-purpose homes that our tenants will enjoy for decades to come.
All the new homes will be one-bedroom units. These are the exactly the kind of homes needed in Wellington to respond to social housing demand, which is mostly from single people and couples without children.
Work has already started on some of the new units, and the first new homes are expected to be ready by June 2018.
