What’s planned

The warm, dry and modern medium-high density housing will offer public housing and will have a 24/7 Single-Site Supported Housing service for our customers. There will also be a community space, gardens and extensive landscaping.

The Rolleston Street development will replace 54 old apartments which did not meeting healthy homes standards.

Alongside these homes we’re also linking with residents, community groups, stakeholders and partners to grow a supported and connected wider community in this part of the city – which has a rich history of providing key worker and social housing for people in central Wellington.
