State Housing

The development project is replacing and adding to Roskill’s existing state homes. Many of these existing homes were built five or more decades ago and are less able to keep the cold and damp out. The new homes are warm, dry, healthy and designed for modern living.

 

Affordable Housing

Homes in more affordable price ranges are a priority within the Roskill Development. There will be a number of options for ordinary Kiwi homebuyers, including those looking for their first home. A good proportion of all the new homes built in Roskill will be below Auckland’s median house price. The Roskill Development team is also exploring opportunities to work with community housing providers.

Market Housing

Providing a variety of types of new homes is vital to addressing the city’s housing needs, and those of the Roskill community. Market homes are being built within neighbourhoods that also include community housing and KiwiBuild homes to create vibrant and diverse communities. Bringing a greater supply of homes to the general market will help ease the pressure on pricing.

What are the homes like?

New homes in the Roskill Development range from one to five bedrooms to suit all sizes of households. New Zealand has an ageing population and a growing number of one and two-people households, so a number of smaller homes are being built to accommodate those smaller families.

Apartment

Apartments provide low maintenance living for small households. Research has shown that smaller, low-rise apartment buildings like the ones being designed for Roskill can facilitate a sense of community. Some of the apartments will be ‘walk-ups’, i.e. on level two or three of an apartment building and you walk up some stairs to reach them.

Terrace

Terraced homes are joined with their neighbour on one or both sides to form a row. They are popular because they use land more efficiently and so are more affordable than standalone homes.

Standalone

Standalone homes are detached from their neighbours. These types of homes don’t use land as efficiently as apartments or terraced housing so there will be less of them built in the Roskill Development neighbourhoods.
