The Queenstown Lakes Community Housing Trusts largest development
to date, in Arrowtown, will be called Tewa Banks and designed by JTB

Housing trust executive officer Julie Scott says the 65-home mixed-
tenure developments been named after Jack Tewa, also known as Maori
Jack, credited with first discovering gold in the Arrow River in 1862.
And, of course, the Banks component refers to the developments
location alongside the Arrow River.
We think its important our development has a name that encapsulates
this special area.
In April, Queenstowns council approved a 3.6-hectare site on Jopp St,
near the Arrowtown Golf Club, to be assigned to the trust for the
comprehensive housing development.
Scott says the final step in formalising the transfers progressing with
the Government.
JTB Architects is reviewing the development master plan, and when
thats done itll present house concept designs to the trust.
Were really excited to have the JTB Architects team on board, as they
have extensive experience in master-planning medium-density
comprehensive developments.
This will be our largest development to date and we are eager to
ensure it is one the Arrowtown community can be proud of.
JTB director Mike Dillon says the companys delighted to be involved
in the project.
We recognise the benefits of quality design in achieving affordable,
sustainable housing outcomes that will deliver benefits to communities
throughout the lifetime of the property.
The trusts annual report says its waiting list now exceeded 600
households  up from 500 12 months ago  wanting to commit to the
district but struggling with housing affordability and security of tenure.
In April, the Otago Daily Times reported the trust planned to construct
five one-bedroom units  at least three of which would be allocated for
senior housing  20 two-bedroom homes, 36 three-bedroom homes and
four four-bedroom homes.
