Summerset Group Holdings Ltd continues to ramp up its development programme, applying for resource consent for a 252-unit & 79-care bed village on a 3.8ha Ellerslie site. This will be the company’s 19th village.
Summerset has proposed a 4-storey building containing care apartments & care beds, independent living apartments, administration & communal facilities. In addition, it wants to build singe- & double-storey villas & townhouses, and independent living apartments in 3 buildings of 6 & 7 storeys.
Submissions on the development at 8 Harrison Rd, Mt Wellington, close with Auckland Council on 16 December. The site is just off the Ellerslie-Panmure Highway, midway between the Southern Motorway interchange & Panmure.
Summerset was granted resource consent on 1 November for the initial phase of a $70 million retirement village at Karaka, and followed that up on 5 November with Environment Court approval for its $120 million village at Hobsonville.
The company lifted its build rate target a year ago, when it bought the Ellerslie site, to 200 units this year and to 300 units/year by the end of the 2015 financial year.
