Mayor Lianne Dalziel opened the Louisson Place development in Opawa on 30 January 2019 with the OCHT team and board members, stakeholders, contractors and the community.
The eight-unit development includes two four-bedroom and six two-bedroom homes. It will house a mix of families and individuals.
Cate Kearney, CE of Ōtautahi Community Housing Trust says the complex is a wonderful addition to the Opawa community.
“We are so pleased that we are able to offer these great homes to people in our community and we look forward to welcoming our new tenants. Thank you to all our staff and contractors who have worked hard to relocate these units so that we can provide more homes for those in need,” said Kearney.
The units are seven years old and have been relocated from the Linwood Park temporary housing village, that passed into Trust ownership in 2017.
After the successful relocation of the units, OCHT has beautified the development with landscaping, fencing, decking and other improvements to ensure the development fits into its surroundings, creating a community that is safe and welcoming for families.
