The Northcote Development is replacing old Kāinga Ora homes with warm, modern homes. The number of homes available to families who need them will increase. At the same time, we are better utilising crown-owned land to increase the number and quality of homes available at an affordable price to homebuyers. While we are building housing we will take the opportunity to enhance the community's enjoyment of Northcote by upgrading amenities. 

Kāinga Ora is managing the development of the new housing and the new/upgraded neighbourhood amenities. Kāinga Ora is also responsible for developing Hobsonville Point in Auckland's northwest. Panuku Development Auckland will look after the reinvigoration of the town centre. Panuku is an Auckland Council organisation. Kāinga Ora, Panuku and many other organisations are working together to support the community as it grows, building on its existing character and strength.

Vision

Building housing on such a large scale gives us the chance to ‘renovate’ the area we are working in and bring public spaces and facilities up to date for the community.
