Housing New Zealand Corporation
HNZC is working to bring forward key sites that can deliver a new higher quality, higher density housing solution. Housing need in NZ has changed and no longer is the traditional 3 bed house meeting the current demographic profile of those needing housing support. A shift towards smaller 1 and 2 bed dwellings, as well as larger 5 and 6 bed dwellings is sought. Wellington has a number of well-located, vacant sites in the Hutt Valley and Porirua awaiting development. McIndoe Urban has been engaged by HNZC to developed new high quality medium density masterplans for a number of these and is currently preparing schemes to Preliminary Design for resource consent.
