Arlington Development Update

In a milestone for the Arlington Development, most of the civil works have now been completed, meaning the site is now well prepared for building new much needed homes in central Wellington.

This has been a significant task given the complexity of the site. Its uneven terrain, complex decontamination requirements, along with the usual Wellington seismic strengthening requirements for a large multi-storey building development like this mean this is a good step forward for developing a site in a prime location that has been underutilised for many years due to these challenges.

However, before we start above ground construction of the homes, we need to take another look at costs and plans given the significant cost escalation since the project began. These issues impact the entire sector, but are particularly significant for a large, complex development such as this.
