Is $750 to rent a three bedroom home in Wellington affordable?
The Wellington City Council opened expressions of interest last Monday for 52 apartments on Willis St. Eight days on, 230 people have put their name forward.
Te Kāinga Aroha apartments are a joint project between the council and The Wellington Company and saw office space in the former Freemasons building converted into apartments. Rents start at $410 for a one-bedroom apartment, $580 for two bedrooms, and $750 for three bedrooms.
One of Wellington's new pop-up libraries is safe but “earthquake-prone”, after the council said it was fine, moved in with a Mayoral speech, then slapped stickers on the front doors two days later.
A sign at Te Awe library, on Brandon St, shows the building is at 16 per cent of new building standard, not because it is quake-prone but because it is yet to get the final council tick-off for strengthening work. The Code of Compliance Certificate (CCC) has been described by the council as being in the final stages since at-least July.
There are roughly 560 buildings, including 283 seen as high priority, around the city, which must be strengthened or demolished to meet new earthquake regulations brought in after the destruction caused by the Kaikōura earthquake.
Hey Neighbourly folk, what do you think is going on here? Hint, it used to be an annual event.
