Ashton Mitchell is proud to have been involved in the Northern Glen Innes Redevelopment led by Creating Communities Ltd which has won an award in the 2019 Property Industry Awards held last Friday. The redevelopment project won Excellence in the competitive ‘Housing New Zealand’ Multi-Residential Property Award. Congratulations to our client Creating Communities Ltd on this well-deserved result.
“The Redevelopment project won Excellence in the competitive ‘Housing New Zealand’ Multi-Residential Property Award.”
The large suburban redevelopment project is at the forefront of intensification on the Auckland isthmus. 156 existing Glen Innes Housing New Zealand properties are being redeveloped into approximately 350 new houses. Of which, 78 will remain social housing alongside 39 affordable houses and a wide mix of new market housing. Designs range from terraced housing and duplexes through to large stand-alone houses.
“Congratulations to our client Creating Communities Ltd on this well-deserved result.”
Critical to the project’s success has been the adoption of a ‘blind tenure’ model, where private and affordable homes are indistinguishable from adjacent new government housing. The new houses are spatially efficient, warm, dry, and well oriented towards the sun. Many of the affordable houses have been designed to adapt to their occupant’s future needs, with resource consent granted for optional future bedroom and garage extensions which can be added as the need arises.
