Riverside Gardens in Lower Hutt was a different project for Dwell. Dwell was not the developer of the newly built homes we have here, instead purchasing our eight homes off the developer, Pomare Redevelopment Ltd.
On 20 January 2015 Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown and Dwell staff, board, supporters and partners celebrated the completion of our four new three bedroom homes at Vennell Street.
The homes were built by Primesite Homes Ltd on land made available by Wellington City Council, and the project was jointly funded by Government and Dwell. We built four three bedroom homes to our usual quality standards. The homes are built on a challenging site.
Wellington Housing Trust's second new build project is located in Adelaide Road, Wellington.
This development is four townhouses, each with four bedrooms. Again this development was partly funded by government’s Housing Innovation Fund – administered by Housing NZ.
The Stoke Street development in Newtown, completed in 2009, was Wellington Housing Trust's first new build project – demolishing two adjacent older properties and building six homes for rent on the site. The homes were designed by Pelorus Architecture Ltd and built by Redican-Allwood builders.
