New housing boost for Henderson
An exciting new housing development is rising in Henderson. Known as Henderson Green, 38 high-quality townhouses have already been constructed, and will soon be joined by three apartment buildings containing 78 apartments.
Located within easy walking distance of multiple schools, fast and frequent public transport connections, parks, eateries, shops and everything else the town centre has to offer, the new houses in Henderson Green will empower residents to live a low-carbon lifestyle.
Working alongside our development partner Brilliant Stone, Eke Panuku has turned unused council land into a mix of housing to provide much needed new homes for people, close to key local destinations. These new homes are part of our ongoing mission to regenerate Henderson into a flourishing eco-centre where sustainability is embraced and harnessed as part of daily life.
Located at 23-27 Henderson Valley Road, the homes boast a Homestar 6 rating, which means they’re built with an eco-friendly emphasis on being more efficient and cost-effective to run, heat and cool. This is not only good for the environment but will also lower living costs for the residents. With the first stage of 38 townhouses completed and sold, work is underway on three apartment buildings.
Henderson is increasingly attractive given the great connections and quality amenities available. Other significant developments under construction in Henderson include a ten-level apartment complex at 1 Buscombe Avenue, known as Plus Pacific Tower.
“This will not only help people to get on the housing ladder, but will also be in a well-designed, eco-friendly development.”— Councillor Linda Cooper
“We are definitely seeing more interest and investment in Henderson, as well as increased housing delivery and density, and this is expected to grow even further given City Rail Link’s plans to improve travel times on the rail network, making the commute shorter between Henderson and the city centre. This growth will help grow local businesses and improve the vitality of the town centre,” says John Carter, Priority Location Director at Eke Panuku.
“As part of our regeneration plans for Henderson, we will continue to collaborate with private developers such as Brilliant Stone to increase the quantity and quality of housing in the west to make it an even better place to live, work and visit. We’re excited to see stage 1 completed and look forward to seeing stage 2.”
Waitākere Ward Councillors Linda Cooper and Shane Henderson are backing the project.
“We know that despite the significant amounts of construction currently underway in the west and Auckland in general, we are still short of housing for people, especially for those wishing to get on the housing ladder,” says Cr Cooper.
“This development will not only provide people with an option to get on the housing ladder, but it will also be in a well-designed, eco-friendly development that is future-focused.”
Councillor Henderson says that the location is also a key factor: “Housing situated near key transport routes provides great options for people. Being near the Central Rail Link, bus station and arterial routes mean this development is in a real sweet spot.
“I’m very much looking forward to seeing the apartments finished, adding to a future for Henderson that is bright and forward thinking,” he says.
