Kāinga Ora is enabling over 40,000 new, warm, dry homes throughout the country in our large-scale and greenfield urban development projects – a mix of public, market, and affordable (like Kiwibuild) homes built over the next 20 years

To achieve this, Kāinga Ora partners with developers, councils, iwi, and government agencies to deliver urban development projects of all sizes.

We are currently leading the delivery of six large-scale development projects in Auckland - Hobsonville Point, Northcote, Roskill, Oranga, and Mangere, and one large-scale project in Porirua. We also have large green field developments in Te Kauwhata, Waikato and Tauriko in Tauranga.

Kāinga Ora is working alongside Tāmaki Regeneration Company to enable more homes in Point England, Panmure, and Glen Innes in Auckland’s east. We have also partnered with Ngāti Toa and Porirua City Council to deliver a large-scale development in Eastern Porirua.

As well as increasing the supply of new quality housing, including more affordable homes like Kiwibuild, these projects will create improved infrastructure, more connected neighbourhoods, and better amenities.

Our approach to urban development recognises that places, cities, and towns aren’t just built things. Good urban design must embrace the past, celebrate the culture of the people that live there and enhance the environment. That’s why we work closely with existing communities and rōpū to ensure our development outcomes have far-reaching benefits and support the Kāinga Ora vision of building better, brighter homes, communities and lives.
