    A new scheme to help essential workers find a home in the capital

    A new scheme to help essential workers find a home in the capital


    Wellington City Council has partnered with The Wellington Company to create 52 apartments - designed to help essential workers find a warm, dry, affordable home to live in.

    Rents have been assessed against the Wellington Housing Affordability Model, and all apartments come with whiteware, free WiFi, bike storage and rubbish disposal.

    Rent for a one-bedroom apartment starts at 410-dollars per week, 580-dollars for two-bedrooms, and 750-dollars for three.

    Expressions of interest are now open, and applications will be prioritised for those on a low to medium income, and who work in an essential public sector role like teaching or nursing.
