Housing NZ takes Mt Albert townhouse land to market

20 residential sections in 5 development blocks in Mt Albert have been put on the market with resource consents in place, 4½ years after Housing NZ was granted special housing area status for a total 8094m².

The 5 blocks at 33 Asquith Avenue, corner of Burch St, Mt Albert, have been put up for tender through Bayleys, closing on Wednesday 21 November.

Each block contains 2-5 sections and they all have resource consents for 4-bedroom townhouses. They’re being offered individually, as one super-block or in any combination of lots. Housing NZ will continue to oversee construction.

Special housing areas were introduced in 2013 through an agreement between then-Housing Minister Nick Smith & Auckland Council. This one had 3 blocks of flats housing boarders at the nearby Mt Albert Grammar School, which were demolished in February 2015.

Housing NZ named the builders for a 40-townhouse project on the land in November 2017 – 20 of them designated one-bedroom units for its tenants and the other 40 to be sold on the open market.

It’s the open-market part that’s up for sale.
