Sale and Purchase agreement completed with Classic Builders for an innovative housing solution for Tauranga - 14 one bedroom units in a special housing accord development. The 63 sqm fully accessible units were ready for the new tenants to move in one week prior to Christmas each. are on approx. 90 sqm of land, in a bid to keep the costs down.
The development has communal seating and bbq's situated outside the units, giving residents a place to gather. This will help meet the demand for 1 bedroom housing in Tauranga that is not currently being met by the market. The tenants in the units are thoroughly enjoying their new home and the friendly community within the development.
TCHT purchased eight ageing 1 bedroom properties from Tauranga City Council's pensioner housing. Applied for and received a grant from the Social Housing Unit to build an age friendly development with 14 purpose built units as part of a sustainable secure village that is functional for people with mixed ages and abilities. 50% of the dwellings are fully wheelchair accessible. Construction was completed in November 2015 and they have been fully occupied since, with great outcomes for the new residents.

Leased a 14 one bedroom building from the Salvation Army to provide transitional housing. The lodge will provide medium/ intermediate housing for people that meet TCHT criteria and wish to reside in a communal environment.
