Apart­ments

Your Home and Garden - - Small Homes Report -

Ki­wis are em­brac­ing the more com­pact life­style of­fered by apart­ment liv­ing and not just in Auck­land. The Salt de­vel­op­ment in Mt Maun­ganui in­cludes 52 apart­ments, 19 town­houses, a cafe and child­care cen­tre and is al­most com­pletely sold. The Pin­na­cle com­plex in Welling­ton is due for com­ple­tion at the end of this year and the same de­vel­op­ers are also build­ing Vic­to­ria Street Precinct, a neigh­bour­ing apart­ment build­ing con­tain­ing 140 dwellings which all sold off the plans. If you love eat­ing out and see­ing movies, but can take or leave sev­eral hours of gar­den­ing ev­ery week­end, apart­ment life could be for you.
