Te Ara o Puanga
Mary Potter Hospice has built an apartment complex adjacent to the Hospice building in Newtown.
About Te Ara o Puanga
The name Te Ara o Puanga means the pathway of Puanga, which is the star that hails the season of Matariki.
Designed by Archaus architect Huw Parslow, the apartment building is tucked behind the existing Mary Potter Hospice Inpatient Unit facility on a small and steep site. The apartments have been built with sustainable materials whenever possible, and were prefabricated offsite to reduce noise and inconvenience to patients, neighbours and staff.
There are 41 units – including 29 furnished studios, eight one bedroom apartments and four two bedroom apartments. The rental income from the apartments will help to fund Mary Potter Hospice services into the future and will provide a stable and reliable revenue stream for the Hospice.
Support Te Ara o Puanga
A number of generous foundation donors helped fund part of the construction of Te Ara o Puanga. The remainder of the costs are funded by bank loan.
Any support you can give to help reduce this loan means the Hospice benefits from the rental return more quickly. This rental income helps Mary Potter Hospice to offer all of our valuable services, free of charge for people who need us regardless of background, wealth, ethnicity and religion.
If you wish to help the Hospice into the future, please contact our donations team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
