Aucklanders love apartment living. It’s the cost-effective way to buy a quality home in a sought-after neighbourhood, where low-maintenance living frees up time and money, and local amenity replaces arduous commutes. Conveniently located 15 minutes from Auckland’s CBD, and just a short walk from the new Te Ara Awataha Greenway, apartments in the Northcote Development are selling fast.

Why buyers are choosing apartment living in Northcote

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.

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.

Live close to all the good stuff

Apartments in Northcote are strategically located near amenities, parks and public spaces. Trade in the traffic and long-distance travel and spend more quality time doing the things you love most. The Northcote Development is just a 15 minute drive from the city centre and just a ten minute drive or fifteen minute cycle to Takapuna beach. Catch up with friends at the newly completed Greenway, walk the kids to school, or enjoy the local cuisine in the town centre.
