A brief history
WMG was started as a property management company focused on student accommodation. In a short amount of time, they became one of the biggest providers of student housing in the area. WMG began looking to the future and planning their next step when they bought under-utilised buildings in Wellington and developed them into hotels. The first hotels in their portfolio were the Setup Manners, the Setup Dixon and Liberty Hotel. They then began to develop their presence in Auckland, with the purchase of Park Hotel and Haka Hotel. WMG developed their current in-house team to start managing and operating these hotels. This forward-thinking approach has allowed WMG to grow their business into its next phase.
With our economic forecasting and company planning we found that there is a huge need for social housing in our inner cities. WMG decided to make the change from hotel development, operations and management to developing our hotels into short and long term accommodations for social housing. We effectively secured long term leases with a good return.
As a company we are resilient, adaptable and have the ability to survive any economic weather.
