新西兰ZT: Hobsonville housing surges ahead
Four years since work started at northwest Auckland's 3,000-residence Hobsonville Pt housing estate, the 150th house is about to be finished.
Rod Chadwick, AVJennings project director, said more than 400 people were now living at the master-planned waterfront housing estate, although only a small portion has been developed.
Most of the new houses are stand-alone or terrace-style, all developed by group house builders but the first apartments are about to go up. The 59-unit one and two-bedroom four-level Brickworks project by T_a_s_m_a_n Cook will rise in four blocks called Crown, Clark, Carder and Holland, arranged around a large central gated courtyard, with one-bedroom 48sq m units selling from $349,000.
"It's the first intensively developed part of the site," Chadwick said of Brickworks, pointing to the new primary school, already open, and the new secondary school about to open in March.
A two-bedroom 71sqm Brickworks unit is advertised at $449,000 and a two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit at $489,000.
Chadwick said more than 20 per cent of Hobsonville Pt housing would be affordable, in the sub-$485,000 range.
那边新房很不错~就是有点贵...那些2bed room 45万的是只有first home buyer才有的吧，而且数量很少..
