PROJECTS

CLAUDE STREET

It’s fitting that our first project involves the redevelopment of 1940’s state homes. Having been revolutionary when built, they now represent the changing needs of tenants, who seek modern warm and dry homes, living and dining areas that are well connected, and low maintenance grounds.

The current two homes will be removed and replaced with 6 x 2 Bedroom dwellings built to meet the demand for two-bedroom homes in this sought-after city fringe area that offers local shops, and proximity to the city, Claudelands and Chartwell.

With better utilisation of the land, a further 4 homes will be provided to the market.

This project commences in April of 2021.

FENWICK CRESCENT

Our second project is currently in the final stages of planning and is expected to start in the middle of 2021.

On this property, there are 4 homes, two brick 1950’s dwellings and two weatherboard 1920’s homes that were moved onto the site at some stage. These will all be removed, and 8 x 2-bedroom homes constructed.

This location provides excellent access to schooling at all levels and the University of Waikato.

This development will provide an additional four homes to the rental market.

COMRIES ROAD

Completed in 2016 under the ownership of Pat Baker and now owned by The Home Bakery. This property was built by GJ Gardner Waikato and project managed by Jeremy. This involved the demolition of a 1940’s brick home, which was replaced by two 2 Bedroom units.

This project was built to the life mark certification and was featured on their website as an example of building rental homes to meet a specific need in the community.

This location was perfect for this type of property, with Chartwell shopping center just down the road, and bus stops for main routes on both sides of Comrie’s Road.

The property remains sought after, with extremely low tenant turnover, and minimal maintenance requirements over the past 5 years.
