Accessible Properties unveils community-focused apartments

37 Halver Road apartments

A new Accessible Properties housing complex is nearing completion – and it boasts a range of features that will enhance the lives of its tenants.

The development at 37 Halver Road in Manurewa, Auckland consists of 23 two-bedroom units and one single bedroom unit.

It’s been two and a half years in the making – now we hope to have the first tenants on site in time to tuck in to their Christmas dinner in a new home.

Accessible Properties project coordinator Isabelle Janus said the four-storey apartment building is ideally suited for elderly tenants, or those with mobility issues, and that’s been reflected in a number of features.

“We take the safety and security of our tenants very seriously,” Isabelle says.

“Entry to the units is controlled by residents. Any visitors have to call up to the room over a security system. Residents can not only hear and speak to the visitor, they’ll be able to see them on a screen as well.”

The units are double-glazed for warmth and quiet, with level access bathrooms for safety and ease of use. A large lift and wide hallways make life easier for tenants using walking frames or wheelchairs.

“Good ventilation will help keep tenants warm and dry,” Isabelle says.

Isabelle says developers Bloom Living have done a fantastic job in creating a welcoming environment.

“There is a communal vegetable garden, and we will look at introducing a communal barbeque,” she says.

“We really wanted to establish that good neighbourly, community feel.”

There’s a carpark for each apartment as well as storage for bikes and mobility scooters.

The site is also close to public transport and perhaps most importantly for many of the tenants – a bowling green.

The Manurewa town centre is only 500 metres away, and the Auckland Regional Botanical Gardens only just over a kilometre away.
