The development project is replacing and adding to Northcote’s existing Kāinga Ora (previously Housing New Zealand) homes. Many of these existing homes were built five or more decades ago and are now old, hard to heat and damp. The new homes are warm, dry, healthy and designed for modern living. This linked article first published in Paperboy celebrates architect, Rewi Thompson’s work designing Northcote’s ‘Everyday Home’. You can see the first of these completed homes on Tonar Street.

Homes in more affordable price ranges are a priority within the Northcote Development. There will be a number of options for ordinary Kiwi homebuyers, including those looking for their first home. A good proportion of all the new homes built at Northcote will be below Auckland’s median house price. HLC is also exploring opportunities to work with community housing providers.

Providing a variety of types of new homes is vital to addressing the city’s housing needs, and those of the Northcote community. Market homes are being built within neighbourhoods that also include community housing and KiwiBuild homes to create vibrant and diverse communities. Bringing a greater supply of homes to the general market will help ease the pressure on pricing.

New homes in the Northcote Development range from one to five bedrooms to suit all sizes of households. New Zealand has an ageing population and a growing number of one and two-people households, so a number of smaller homes are being built to accommodate those smaller families.
