NZX-listed retirement village company Summerset has been
granted resource consent to build a $70 million complex at
its site on Hingaia Road, in Karaka, on Auckland's southern
outskirts, the company said.
The 3.6ha village will be the company's 17th and its third in
the Auckland region.
Construction at Karaka is expected to start this year, with
the first stage of homes completed in late 2014. The village
will be made up of about 120 homes including villas,
townhouses, and care apartments. It will also have a 49-care
bed centre offering rest home and hospital-level care.
