The Kotuku Apartments upgrade was completed in July 2016. It now provides 73 upgraded apartments for a mix of families, couples and single tenants close to Kilbirnie's excellent community facilities.
New facilities and features
The four 4-storey blocks previously contained only studio apartments. We reconfigured the buildings to provide family units on the ground floor (two-bedroom and four-bedroom units) with outdoor access to their own decks, and a mix of studios and one-bedroom units on the upper floors.
Kotuku Apartments history
Wellington City Council designed and built the Kotuku Apartments complex in the late 1960s. Located between Evans Bay Parade and Kemp Street in Kilbirnie, the site is close to many facilities, parks, shopping, schools and transport.
In 2014, a project was initiated to upgrade 73 apartments for our tenants.
The project was completed in two stages. Stage one was completed in May 2016 and stage two in July 2016.
