First Waingakau homes almost ready
The first of the 124 homes in Flaxmere’s Waingakau Village are almost complete.
The vision for the village, masterminded by Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga (TToH), is to provide warm, healthy, quality homes using a co-housing model, underpinned by Māori values of co-operation and inter-generational living.
Regenerative Ltd project director Emma Horgan says a number of the first homes have buyers but, with many more to be built, that should not put off people contacting TToH to discuss their options.
“Don’t be discouraged if you don’t have a deposit right now. The vision for the project includes having different ways of helping people into homes through various supported purchasing pathways.”
Getting the first homes built within just three months of the blessing and sod-turning is pretty impressive.
Three are almost complete, with the next eight about to be started.
The pace would not be letting up, with the first of the co-housing developments, made up of 17 or 18 homes with communal outdoor area, due to be started early next year.
