New Ground Capital has teamed up with the NZ Super Fund and Ngāi Tahu Property to develop 208 new homes at Hobsonville Point, of which 47 will be retained by the consortium as long term rental units and the balance sold on the open market.
Ngāi Tahu Property are acting as development manager and New Ground will be responsible for managing the rental properties. Construction is well underway and the homes will be completed over the course of 2018.
The development offers a mix of housing typologies ranging from apartments and terraced housing, through to standalone homes. At least half of these homes are being offered to the market beneath the Auckland median house price.
47 of the homes being built will be retained by the consortium and made available as long-term rental properties. Anyone can apply to rent one of these homes once they are offered to the market via the New Ground Living website in early 2018.
This initiative will offer people a rare opportunity to lease a professionally managed rental property in a neighbourhood with high quality amenities, including the new Hobsonville Point primary and secondary schools. With lease terms of up to seven years, leaseholders will know that they have security of tenure, whilst still being able to shorten their lease should their circumstances change.
New Ground Property Management Limited will be responsible for managing the rental properties, and more information can be found on these properties on the New Ground Living website.
