Kāinga Ora’s Urban Development team is leading the largest urban regeneration ever undertaken in New Zealand, a multi-billion dollar programme that will transform suburbs and communities across the country.

This programme provides an important opportunity to improve and increase amenity, public space, and infrastructure.

Our vision is to increase the supply and choice of new, high-quality housing, and to support and strengthen communities as they grow. We achieve this by partnering with industry, the local community, and agencies such as Auckland Council, Auckland Transport and the Ministry of Education.

Auckland Housing Programme

The Auckland Housing Programme is helping Auckland to develop as a vibrant city by delivering more quality homes at pace and scale.

Kāinga Ora is the one of the largest landowners in Auckland. Much of this land is underutilised so it makes sense to intensify the use of this land to create more homes for Auckland.

The Auckland Housing Programme is not just about numbers of homes. The programme will deliver warm, healthy homes for many Aucklanders – more state housing; more homes for first home buyers; and a greater supply of homes on the market, to house the growing population. It will create improved infrastructure and better amenities for Auckland.

The AHP will create more competition and innovation in the home construction market by creating a significant pipeline of work for building companies.

Stage one is nearing completion, and stage two is now underway delivering state, market and more affordable housing.
