Social housing is often built on the suburban fringe. Transit Urban Developments are considered best practice as they are integrated within communities and strategically placed within close proximity of amenities, retail, services and, importantly, public transport hubs.
The Ted Manson Foundation Westlight Apartment development in Glen Eden, currently under construction, sets a new benchmark in community housing in New Zealand. Just two minutes’ walk from the Glen Eden Railway Station, Westlight is ideally located for city commuter, local workers and students.
In addition to 75 freehold apartments, the Westlight mixed-use development includes 90 purpose-built 1 and 2-bedroom apartments to be separately managed by Compass Housing Services NZ.
This development illustrates the type of development advocated by the Minister of Urban Development and the new Urban Development Authority.
For 42 years, Ted Manson has taken great pride in building a better Auckland by developing leading-edge residential and commercial buildings that provide Aucklanders with a better quality of life.
Through the foundation, Ted is committed to making robust, safe, warm and healthy homes more accessible to a broader cross-section of the community.
