Housing New Zealand – Market research for 75 non-public houses in central Auckland

Jan 1, 1970 | News

Housing New Zealand (HNZ) will be redeveloping its well-known site at 139 Greys Ave in central Auckland. It will be housing more people in a supportive housing environment which will help tenants live more stable and productive lives.

HNZ has been working closely with key government agencies including health and social development, non-for-profit and international experts in supportive, inner-city housing, while also listening to the experiences of tenants and neighbours.

They are looking to create a welcoming, supportive and connected community within an environment that promotes greater heath and wellbeing. There will be a community hub on the ground level along with a 24/7 on site wrap-around support services for all tenants and 24/7 concierge service. The building will be a safe place to live, work and visit.

There is over 2000 sqm of indoor communal space for community making and engagement. It will feature a shared kitchen, dining hall, recreation space and medical facilities. Informal bump spaces have been designed on each floor to help create a sense of home and community.

There will be an increase in scale and social diversity at the site. This will be achieved by developing approximately 275 new apartments, 200 of which are to be used as state housing and 75 are to be rented to the private market. Up to 80 of the state homes are intended for higher and complex need tenants, many of whom are currently homeless. All tenants will be supported by on-site communal amenity and support services such as healthcare, counselling and skill development.

Market research

HNZ is conducting market research to understand their options for renting approximately 75 non-public housing apartments included in the planned development at 139 Greys Avenue. The 75 non-public housing apartments are expected to be rented to the general public at a market rent (people who don’t otherwise qualify for state housing).

A suitable qualified third-party (leasee) will lease approximately 75 apartments from HNZ and sublease them to non-public housing tenants. Under the tenancy agreement with the occupant we would expect the third party leasee would be the landlord for the property. HNZ would be responsible for asset management and maintenance.

The functioning of the building as a whole is important to HNZ, and therefore the leasee would be expected to ensure that the 75 tenancies operate in a way that supports the overall cohesion of the building in this high density environment.
