Major New Residential Community To Grow Hāwera’s Housing Options


A major new master-planned residential community in the
coastal Taranaki township of Hāwera is set to substantially
grow the town’s housing options.

The new development,
Longview, consists of 250 sections for purchasers to build
their dream home, accommodating a range of section sizes and
prices over multiple stages. Located on the north-eastern
fringe of Hāwera’s existing urban boundary, Longview is
bordered by Turuturu Road, Turuturu Soccer Club and the
town’s railway line.

On completion, the new suburb
will see the creation of five streets – with a main avenue
running through the middle of the development – with cycle
and pedestrian links to the town centre, Mason Road, and
Wybourne Road.

Sections within stage one of the
Longview residential development have been released on the
market for sale – with sites ranging in size from
505-square metres up to 844-square metres, and purchase
prices accordingly varying from an entry-level of $169,000
up to $244,000. Initial interest has been very high with a
number of contracts already out for signing.

is owned by Hāwera company Panda Developments, whose
directors are long-time Hāwera locals Paul and Brenda

Sections within stage one of Longview are
being marketed for sale through Bayleys Hāwera. Salesperson
Greg Brunton said the subdivision was the the first
master-planned residential development of its type and scale
to be undertaken in Taranaki.

“There is a need for
affordable, quality-built new homes across South Taranaki
– and residents of Longview will not only enjoy the
benefit of being situated immediately adjacent to the
town’s urban green space, but will also be within
comfortable walking distance of the town’s social and
civic amenities,” he said.

Mr Brunton said several
sections within Longview stage one had already been
committed to by nationally-branded home-construction firms
keen on building show homes – underpinning the
location’s value and appeal as a long-term addition to
Hāwera’s urban landscape. The first stage of the
development consists of 42 sections.

home-owners in the area to literally get in on the ground
floor of this exciting development,” he said.
