State-of-the-art development to rise from the ashes of former state home

Eight houses on Great North Rd have now been demolished to make way for a six-storey apartment block containing 63 new, warm and dry homes, six of which will be fully accessible.

The development will use modular homes, meaning each one-bedroom apartment will consist of a single factory-built module or ‘pod’ manufactured off-site.

Kāinga Ora General Manager Construction and Innovation Patrick Dougherty says the innovation will help fast track the delivery of public housing.

“Innovation is one of five key priority areas of Building Momentum - our construction plan for future homes. Off-site manufacturing will help to streamline the design and delivery of new builds,” he says.
