Flagship Housing NZ project takes out another top award
Housing New Zealand’s flagship community renewal project Talbot Park has won yet another commendation, this time from the Property Council New Zealand, says Housing Minister Maryan Street.
Talbot Park in Glen Innes, Auckland, won the top urban design award at the Property Council’s annual prizegiving ceremony last night
Maryan Street is also attending the opening of the neigbourhood’s Kotuku and Talbot Parks today. Led by Auckland City Council, the parks have been redesigned to include a children’s playgrounds, skate facilities, green spaces, hard courts, covered event/exercise pavilion and cycle way.
Both the parks and housing development adhered to crime prevention design principles in order to improve safety and reduce crime, Maryan Street said.
“The challenge now is for both the Corporation, and the community to maintain and build on the successes demonstrated at Talbot Park, for the long-term sustainability of the Talbot Park community and for future urban renewal projects.
