Answer

Yes, many people do. There is high demand for apartment living – people buying off the plans, and even going to the effort of doing cohousing – because they know they can have a good life in a well-designed, well-located apartment. Wellington has a gap in its market for apartments, but also for most of the other types of housing besides stand-alone homes. The Spatial Plan aims to see a range of housing available that gives people a good life, including apartments, townhouses, and standalone homes.
