“We believe the Ōtautahi Urban Guild’s plan for a 150-home co-housing development with a focus on sustainability and communal spaces is innovative and will broaden the appeal of living in the central city,” says Ōtākaro Limited Chief Executive, John Bridgman.
The Ōtautahi Urban Guild is a joint venture between Ohu, Viva, Urban Apostles, and Matapopore. Guild spokesperson, James Stewart says the development will have a focus on building a community in the central city with homes at an affordable price point.

We plan a collaborative project with potential residents and the Guild involved in the development of the design and fitout of their home. Our focus will be on utilising sustainable and carbon neutral materials that reduce both the upfront and ongoing cost of the home.”
