Waimahia Inlet is a pioneering affordable community housing development, comprising approximately 300 units, with community housing and private tenure. It is unique in its private and public partnership, funding being put forward by third party community housing providers, backed by a $29m Government grant. Waimahia Inlet was also the very first development to be granted consent under the new Special Housing Accord.
The development will be constructed in 4 stages, with planned overall completion in 2017. Dwellings will range in size from 2 bedroom units, to 5 bedroom houses, on an average sized lot of 274m². With local parks and the neighbouring estuary, the site is very well appointed.
Hargrave is engaged by Housing Foundation, on behalf of Tamaki Makaurau Community Housing Ltd to manage the development.
