Apartment living is growing in popularity as more Aucklanders choose compact homes over hefty mortgages and vibrant neighbourhoods over big backyards. Conveniently located 15 minutes from Auckland’s CBD, and just a short walk from a soon-to-be revitalised town centre, apartments in the Northcote Development are selling fast.

Three reasons to love apartment life in Northcote

Inner-city living without breaking the bank

Apartments use land more efficiently which significantly reduces the purchase price of a home. In the case of the Northcote Development apartments, those costs are further reduced. Apartments here are built to a 6 Homestar standard, reducing maintenance and energy costs. And thanks to intelligent design practices such as maximising sun exposure, Northcote’s apartment lovers will be saving long after purchasing their brand new home.

Suitable for all ages and stages

Apartments in the Northcote Development have been planned with all ages and stages in mind. Minimalist millennials can opt for a more compact lifestyle in a smaller home, saving their hard-earned pennies for experiences over ‘stuff’. Growing families can enjoy close proximity to local schools (with a primary school right across the road), and clever designs that accommodate kids and pets. Empty-nesters can downsize without compromising on quality and community.

Live close to all the good stuff

The Northcote Development is just five kilometres from the city centre and just a ten minute drive or fifteen minute cycle to Takapuna beach. Northcote’s town centre is brimming with a diverse range of dining options and is scheduled for a major revitalisation project by Panuku Development over the coming years. A soon-to-be-completed living greenway will link several of Northcote’s apartments to each other, parks, the schools, and the town centre.

Meet Sophie, Apartment Lover

Sophie bought her first home - a KiwiBuild apartment at Fraser Ave in Northcote - off the plans. “I wasn't sure what to expect, but once I got to see the completed apartment for the first time, all my worries were gone. It was better than what I could have hoped for.” She says the clever layout and high ceilings make it feel bigger than some of the standalone homes she looked at, and the double-glazing and insulation mean her home is perfectly peaceful - and she’s never had to turn on the heating.
