The Westlight development is a partnership with the Ted Manson Foundation, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development and Compass Housing Services.
The Westlight development provides a high standard of housing with Homestar 6 accreditation. As a result, Westlight households will use significantly less energy and water, and will have less moisture or condensation issues, making it healthier to live in and more affordable to run.
Westlight is a mixed tenure housing development, there are 163 units in total, a mix of 1 and 2 bedroom units and 7 townhouses.
The 90 purpose-built apartments are managed by Compass Housing Services for community housing residents and includes 41 one-bedroom and 49 two-bedroom apartments.
There are 75 freehold apartments and 7 townhouses for sale, including properties for sale under the government’s KiwiBuild programme.
The Ted Manson Foundation is committed to delivering high quality, safe, warm and healthy homes that are more accessible to a broader cross-section of the community.
The Ministry of Housing and Urban Development is responsible for strategy, policy, funding, monitoring and regulation of New Zealand’s housing and urban development system. It will provide funding for the project over the contract period.
