To reduce the media stigma associated with social housing and to broaden the social networks for our residents, we support mixed tenure models of housing developments. These include community housing, affordable housing for those that are working in median income jobs and those in market housing for those in above median incomes.
For example, the 18-storey Ted Manson Foundation Life Apartments in Liverpool Street, Auckland and the Westlight development in Glen Eden are representative of high-quality world best practice, mixed tenure developments that promote and encourage social inclusion and integrated communities.
Ted Manson’s leadership in creating mixed tenure developments in partnership with the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development and Compass Housing, a not for profit housing organisation is unprecedented in New Zealand.
The Life Apartments in Liverpool Street, Auckland are safe, secure and low maintenance.
The apartments are close to public transport links and are only a 12 minute walk to the University of Auckland and 8 minute walk to K Road and a 12 minute walk to Queen Street.
