Developed by the Ted Manson Foundation, a charitable trust that promotes community housing in Auckland, this project aimed to provide safe, warm and healthy homes at an affordable price. It differs from most developments of its type as it includes a mix of units managed by a cooperative alongside privately owned apartments.
The Westlight Apartments dominate the skyline in the West Auckland suburb of Glen Eden and offer spectacular views of the Waitakere Ranges and the surrounding countryside. The two 10-storey tower blocks also also feature generous podium areas on the lower floors.
