Mangere set for Kiwibuild upheaval
The Government intends to build 10,000 new homes in Mangere.
Minister of Housing and Urban Development Phil Twyford this morning opened an information centre for the development.
He says over the next 10 to 15 years 2700 worn out state houses will be replaced with a similar number of new state houses, 3500 new KiwiBuild and affordable homes, and 3500 market homes.
Stage 1a of the redevelopment has started with 35 houses being demolished to be replaced by 66 more state houses and 100 other homes, at least half of which will be KiwiBuild and affordable.
Mr Twyford says the redevelopment is near the route of the coming light rail line.
