Over 200 potential KiwiBuild buyers entered the ballot for 44 KiwiBuild apartments in Wellington's Monark development, making it the most popular KiwiBuild ballot to date. The Wellington Company and KiwiBuild are now working with them to finalize their purchases.
Managing Director of The Wellington Company, Ian Cassels, says the heightened interest is a testament to the city itself. "Wellington is an extremely attractive place for people to build their lives, and we're seeing this reflected across the housing market," said Cassels.
Monark Development Director, Earl Hope-Pearson, attributes the popularity of the project to a number of factors. "It's the unique combination of a fantastic city-fringe location, the heavily discounted price, Wellington's significant housing demand and delivery by a trusted developer."
Should any ballot winners choose not to move forward with their purchase, KiwiBuild will redraw the ballot for that home to offer other entrants an opportunity to buy.
