Taita is one of the easternmost suburbs of Lower Hutt situated toward the northern end of the city. It is in a convenient location as it is only a few minutes’ drive to the Lower Hutt CBD and has easy access to the motorway as you head towards Avalon over the Kennedy-Good Bridge. Professionals, Redcoats Limited is proud to announce the release of over 100 properties in the new Riverside Gardens development which is located in High Street, Taita.
Taita has a wide range of facilities including shops, its own mini supermarket, tennis courts and much more. The Walter Nash stadium is also situated in Taita which is one of Lower Hutt’s leading indoor sporting venues for basketball, netball and volleyball (huttcitygovt.co.nz).
There are exciting upcoming plans for Taita as the City Council are currently developing a centre in Taita that will be a sports venue, leisure and learning space and a hub for the local community.
The new centre will combine the Walter Nash stadium, Taita Community Hall, Taita Library and the Hutt Valley netball courts. Once developed there will be a great hub for community programmes, services and activities for the local area including a new library, community meeting spaces, cafes and much more which will provide community learning, events and much more. The new plan for Taita emphasizes the suburb’s focus which is why it is a great environment to raise a family in.
Prue Levy, an agent here at Professionals, Redcoats Limited has a high opinion of Taita as she says “there is Value for money here in Taita, good sturdy homes built in the 1940's - 1950's close to transport with the train station opposite the shopping centre and handy to the motorway. Sport holds a good position in this area with the netball courts and close proximity to Avalon sport grounds this is a great area to live in”
Prior to WWII, Taita was predominantly market gardens with a population of only 100. However, during and after the war state houses were developed in the area with the majority of homes in Taita built between 1945 and 1950. Much of this expansion can be directly contributed to the development of the rail service which was installed in 1947. Today, Taita is a good mixture of private and state housing and is well-serviced by both bus and rail links. Also found in Taita is Christ Church, the oldest church in Wellington which was built in 1854.
