KiwiBuild Announce Mt. Albert Apartments

The government has announced that 18 new apartments at the Ockham Residential Tuatahi development in Mt. Albert are now available to eligible KiwiBuild buyers through the ballot process.

These apartments are not being built specifically for KiwiBuild but are an existing project which is underway and making a few apartments available through the KiwiBuild process for first home buyers. The real advantage is that there are just 18 apartments being made available in a much larger project, and therefore you will get a good mix of people from varied situations.
