Two new apartment developments have been consented by Wellington City Council.

A nine-storey block of 24 apartments has been approved for the corner of Abel Smith and Victoria streets.

And an eight-unit development has been approved on the site of an old house on the corner of Brougham and Pirie streets. It was designed by Parsonson Architects for the family who had owned the property for decades.

The Abel Smith apartments were designed by DLA architects for Habia Ltd.

Director Kelvin Hale, who is also involved with Ebert Construction, said construction was scheduled to start next year and be completed by early 2015.

Like a similar development on the corner of Torrens and Webb streets, which was completed last year, it would provide rental apartments for young professionals and students.
