Soho Developments and Home in Place partnered to deliver 36 community housing apartments in Glen Eden. Ngahihi O Te Ra was officially opened in June 2021 and provides much-needed medium density housing within walking distance of key amenities.
The architecturally designed two-and three-bedroom walk-up apartments are spread over three levels, with outdoor living available on private balconies.
The apartments are divided between a series of separate buildings which enclose a central communal shared green space, providing room for more outdoor living. The location is within walking distance of Glen Eden town center and a range of Kelston schools.
The property was gifted the name Ngahihi O Te Ra by the local kaumātua in appreciation of the sun filtered through the trees surrounding the property. The communal garden is the perfect spot for tenants to socialise, and enjoy the sunlight that gave the site its name.
