It’s totally normal. There are so many questions: Where should I buy? How can I be sure the house is good quality? Am I getting value for money? The good news is that the decision to buy in one of the Kāinga Ora-led developments at Northcote, Hobsonville Point, Roskill, Mangere or Tāmaki comes with plenty of reassurance you’re making a smart move.
Kāinga Ora is the government agency tasked with delivering thousands of new homes to New Zealanders, including state, open market and KiwiBuild homes. Their urban development team works with award-winning architects, respected builders, urban planners and local communities to deliver high quality homes and neighbourhoods that will be a pleasure to live in for generations to come.

Every home built in a Kāinga Ora-led development must achieve a 6 Homestar rating or higher, so you know they’ll be warm, dry, energy- and water-efficient, and built from quality materials. Compare that to the average older Kiwi house, which would achieve a 2-3 Homestar rating; or the average new house built to the NZ Building code, which would achieve a 3-4 Homestar rating.
Significant investment is being poured into each of these five neighbourhoods to build on their strengths and prepare them for growth. Kāinga Ora and their partners are upgrading streets, infrastructure, walkways, parks and town centres, so you can be confident you’re buying in an area people will love to live in for years to come.
One of the most frustrating things about buying a home is paying for builders reports and lawyers’ fees, only to get outbid over and over again at auctions. When you buy a new-build home off the plans in one of these five Kāinga Ora developments, you can say goodbye to wasted money, bidding wars and budget creep. The quality is assured and the price is fixed. Now that’s a smart move.
Apartments, walk-up apartments, terraces, duplexes and standalone homes. There are all sorts of beautiful high quality homes being built in Kāinga Ora-led developments. Here are just a few.
