Endeavour Avenue development - Hamilton

To help meet the high demand for housing in Hamilton, Kāinga Ora is looking at building new homes on the vacant Crown-owned land in Endeavour Ave, next to the Flagstaff shops. These modern high-quality houses will be a mix of public housing and privately owned market housing.

This almost 2 hectare site has been set aside for public housing for many years, and while previous investigations for housing were not progressed, the current strong demand for quality homes has seen new plans now developed.

Between May and July 2020 we shared early concept designs with neighbours, stakeholders and the community. During July and August 2020 we considered this feedback, concerns and questions raised. This has helped us refine our designs both to ensure we meet the pressing need for more housing in fast-growing Hamilton, while building homes which fit in with the neighbourhood.

We’ve made some changes

We have taken on board the feedback we have received, and the new plans mean:

  • 60 homes, rather than 70
  • all buildings to be two-storey, with the apartment buildings dropping in height from three-storey
  • a change in the mix of public and market housing from half of each to approx. 35 public homes and 25 privately owned homes
  • fewer homes and fewer vehicles will reduce the local traffic impact
  • 139 off-street parking spaces provided, and 38 visitor parks.

Next steps

We expect to lodge these plans for resource consent with Hamilton City Council in October 2020.
