The Government is continuing to tackle the housing crisis with a transformational programme to build around 10,000 new homes for families in Mt Roskill that will be linked up to Auckland’s communities through the planned light rail line, Housing and Urban Development Minister Phil Twyford has announced.
Phil Twyford today unveiled the Mt Roskill Development at the site of a newly built state house. Similar in scale to the Mangere Development, the 143 hectare Mt Roskill Development will be built over the next 10 to 15 years.
“Not only will this redevelopment provide families in Mt Roskill with high-quality new, homes, it’ll provide the infrastructure to cope with growth and connect with the planned light rail line.
“This redevelopment will include more than 2,400 modest, affordable KiwiBuild homes for first home buyers, around 3,000 market homes, and more than 3,000 new state homes.
“Building in Roskill South has already started. Under stage one, 80 new state homes will be built, with the first ready to move into next year.
