Hauwai was delivered in partnership with Taranaki Whanui , bringing together Iwi and Crown to deliver an affordable housing response to the housing needs of community. Wellington's first KiwiBuild project, the 1 and 2-bedroom apartments were affordably priced, with excellent amenity and were sold first to iwi on a pre-release basis, then was opened to both KiwiBuild and open market sales. The KiwiBuild ballot was extremely popular.
The brand-new development on the fringe of Wellington’s CBD and the cusp of Newtown enjoys a light-filled full corner site, with expansive views over the Basin Reserve and Government House. All apartments offer a high-quality environment, with generous living and private spaces and plentiful storage. Residents enjoy quality finishes and fittings within carefully considered interiors: featuring timeless pre-finished concrete panels, designer kitchens and open-air decks. Hauwai is contemporary architecture with an exacting build standard in a thriving city-fringe area offering absolutely unbeaten convenience.
