1 Berwyn Ave is a unique housing development under construction in Takanini, Auckland. The project will have 14 ‘state of the art’ freehold dwellings.
Four homes on the ground level of this construction are on target to achieve Lifemark® 5-Star ratings after receiving provisional ratings prior to construction.
One Central by Fletcher Living is a range of desirable, connected urban neighborhoods that are full of energy and spirit, and showcasing diverse urban regeneration. With plans for up to 900 homes, accommodating over 2000 people, One Central will cater to a variety of lifestyles and life-stages.
Half of the homes at One Central are targeted to achieve a Lifemark® 3-Star rating for incorporating baseline accessibility and Universal Design.
For years, elderly people and disables have lost their right to normality. They have been constrained to use objects and environments which are visibly “different” from others. Therefore, accessible bathrooms are essential.
This could well be New Zealand’s most sustainable house. The first house in the country to receive both a 5-Star Lifemark™ rating and a 10 Star Homestar rating, from Belvedere Group’s Ecostar Homes range.
Property Investor Jeremy Baker includes Lifemark™ homes in his personal portfolio of properties. Here’s what he had to say about the experience.
“We chose Lifemark™ because we wanted to test the rental market for accessible homes and Lifemark™ was a good way for us to ensure the property was accessible and we had thought of everything, and it was also an easy way to communicate the nature of the property when we went to market with it.
