Expressions of Interest: Mixed Tenure Residential Housing

Housing New Zealand wishes to bring to your attention a new and rare opportunity to take a fresh approach to providing different homes for different people within a prime piece of suburban real estate.

Housing New Zealand provides safe and affordable homes for people in greatest need. As New Zealand’s largest landlord, we own or lease about 69,000 properties, housing around 200,000 people.

Our vision for the future is that state houses are part of healthy, sustainable, mixed communities including state, social and privately owned properties.

Housing New Zealand Corporation (HNZC) owns a prime development site in Parnell. The 5,552m2 property sits within four street frontages and is currently in 11 individually titled parcels.

With a prime site close to the Auckland CBD, the challenge is to create a mix of quality privately owned and rented housing that makes a positive addition to the neighbourhood.

We need a partner to take the project from start to finish and are open to options on how that can be achieved commercially. The outcome will help set the benchmark for future Housing New Zealand developments.

Interested parties must comply with the submission requirements contained in the Housing New Zealand EOI document. This document is available for download from www.gets.govt.nz.

Responses to this Request for Expression of Interest must be received by 12 noon, 30 September 2013.
