This assessment methodology has been developed to provide a robust urban design rating system for medium-density housing developments that can be used for different building typologies. The methodology can be modified and adapted to provide a tool to assess proposed and existing medium-density housing.

The assessment methodology has been tested by writing three case studies for:

  • Stonefields, Auckland
  • The Altair, Wellington
  • Chester Courts, Christchurch.
