WCC Te Mara Apartments

Te Mara Apartments are an exemplar social housing project that demonstrates the very latest thinking in adaptable social housing in New Zealand, providing warm, dry, safe, healthy housing that is suitable for modern living.

Ten three storey buildings have been designed around a large centrally located landscaped courtyard that forms the heart of the complex. 105 new residential units are configured as one, two, three, and four bedroom apartments. The new development integrates into and positively improves the surrounding neighbourhood, providing much needed quality affordable housing for Wellington residents most in need.
