Harrison Street redevelopment

Construction on these nine new homes is underway.

These flats were vacated in April 2017 as they were earthquake-prone. The people living there were found new homes within our City Housing portfolio elsewhere in the city.

Development of this site offers the opportunity to provide more modern social housing for the city.


We have a draft concept site plan for this redevelopment available to view:


September 2022

The redevelopment of the site is proceeding well.

The main structures are complete and practical completion is forecasted in the next few months.

We’ll be finishing off the details before moving people in. Curtains are due to be installed very soon and we aim to have new families moving in, in the new year.

February 2022

The redevelopment of the site is proceeding well.

All four concrete floor slabs have now been poured and framing is underway on two of the four blocks. Two blocks have been fully framed with exterior cladding underway.
