The quarter-acre dream is fading fast in Wellington with announcement of a modern housing development to be built in Johnsonville.

Wellington City Council has granted resource consent for a multi-unit development called North Point, which will consist of 70 residential units and 97 carparks on a block of land roughly the same size as a rugby field.

Stage one of construction is expected to be completed in November 2018. The three-bedroom units will be priced from $665,000.
