222 Willis is the newest student accommodation development in Wellington, New Zealand.  Redevelopment on site at 222 Willis St is currently taking place and the complex will be ready to welcome its first intake of students in February 2014. 

The complex comprises of 6 floors with 280 beds. The accommodation is configured into a mix of studio, 2 bedroom and 4 bedroom apartments. Each apartment is self-catered and has its own bathroom. 

222 Willis will be a living-learning community that fosters learning in its broadest sense, with a focus on academic success and personal development.  222 Willis will be a sustainable, modern, community focused environment of which students from around Wellington City will be active, contributing members. 

The development has created a lot of interest in both New Zealand and overseas.  To keep everyone updated with progress we have created this blog.  We will be posting information, and best of all pictures, on a regular basis so you can stay updated on the project!

Here are some recent pictures from the work talking place on the ground floor of 222 Willis.  Before long this area will have some apartments, the Cinema Room and the Events Centre.  At the moment though it has a small digger digging the drains and levelling out the floor!!!
