KiwiBuild to lift house construction investment

The Government’s KiwiBuild initiative will deliver 100,000 affordable houses over the next 10 years, giving hope to first-home buyers and addressing New Zealand’s housing crisis, Minister of Housing and Urban Development Phil Twyford says.
Treasury forecasts show that KiwiBuild will boost residential construction investment by 10 per cent by 2022.
“The latest forecast in the Half Year Economic and Fiscal Update shows an extra $5.4 billion of residential construction investment will take place over the next four financial years, largely as a consequence of KiwiBuild,” Phil Twyford says.
