Now open - a new Living Well Community for over-65s in Waipa, selling now
A rare opportunity is taking shape in the Waipa district of Waikato – an Arvida Living Well community that’s being built from the ground up. Located on more than 31 acres of prime land in Te Awamutu, Whai Mauri Ora | In Pursuit of Wellbeing will reflect the needs and desires of residents. The first homes are now due for completion in October 2023.
A unique community with something for everyone
The Whai Mauri Ora community will be developed in stages over several years. Once complete, it will include approximately 180 villas, a care centre with apartments and care suites, and exceptional shared facilities for entertainment, fitness and socialising. The specialised centre for aged care will reflect our Attitude of Living Well philosophy, which focuses on resident-led care that helps each resident to live their best life. The community’s design will maximise the feeling of open space and offer wonderful views towards Mt Pirongia and Mt Kakepuku.
Every Arvida community reflects the people who live in it, so no two are the same. For example, our Waimea Plains community near Nelson has an e-bike group and craft beer brewing club, as a salute to local interests. And our new community in Kerikeri, Te Puna Waiora, has a share boat and an area of native forest that is looked after by residents. This resident-led approach will also apply at Whai Mauri Ora, as we discover what the locals like doing. By becoming one of the first residents you can directly influence how the community develops.
The site for Whai Mauri Ora was blessed by Ngāti Apakura elders before work commenced. The elders placed a Mauri stone during a ceremony that is reserved only for buildings of significance. The name Whai Mauri Ora, gifted to us by Ngāti Apakura, means ‘in pursuit of wellbeing’. It ties perfectly to our Attitude of Living Well philosophy, which focuses on every aspect of good health and wellbeing.
Early enquiries ensure the greatest choice
Stage One of Whai Mauri Ora is underway and the first homes will be ready in October 2023. These villas are located in small neighbourhood clusters oriented to the sun. There is a choice of one, two and three-bedroom designs ranging from 128sqm to 194sqm. Each villa has its own landscaped courtyard and a garage with internal access. A series of informal pedestrian paths through green spaces will link the villa neighbourhoods to community activity and socialising facilities, including the future clubhouse.
