Williams Corporation converts unsold townhouses into Airbnbs
Embattled housing developer Williams Corporation is making a buck converting some of its unsold townhouses into Airbnbs.
On Biddle Cres, in the Lower Hutt suburb of Taitā, six townhouses operate as short-term accommodation on Airbnb. Each of them is still owned by Williams Corp, despite the 30-townhouse development being labelled “sold out” on the company’s website.
Drive just three minutes to Milne Cres, and you’ll find another five Airbnbs – still owned by the company, within another supposedly sold-out development.
