Urban eco village for Auckland?
Fairground is starting a consultation process with a wide range of architects, town planners, developers and building suppliers to look at high density eco housing close to the heart of Auckland city.
With the population increasing and becoming more urbanized Malcolm believes it’s imperative to create practical, commercially successful green solutions for healthy housing and sustainable living. Malcolm’s plan is to create a vibrant, healthy urban eco-village that’s so successful it will be copied by developers worldwide.
