New, warm, dry homes for Mangere

Early planning work is underway for the Mangere Development which will bring new warm, healthy homes to neighbourhoods throughout Mangere. We will also be improving some of the streets and parks in the neighbourhoods we’re working in. The whole development will take 10-15 years and will see an estimated 2,500 state homes replaced with up to 10,000 homes. By using the land more efficiently than we did back in the 1950s and 60s when the original homes were built, we will be able to increase the number of state homes available and also build much-needed new homes for the Auckland housing market. Homes in more affordable price ranges will also be a priority within the Mangere Development.

How will the community benefit?

The Mangere Development will bring several benefits to the community. There will be a greater choice of high quality housing available. High quality homes are healthy homes. The streets, parks and public open space near the new housing will be upgraded. New homes will bring new people to the area to invest in and contribute to the community. This is good for local businesses and schools. The development will create jobs for local people and pathways to home ownership.

Older Housing New Zealand homes in Mangere will be replaced with warm, dry, modern homes.
What happens to state housing tenants?

We are building more state homes than we are taking away. If you are a tenant living in Mangere, you may need to move to different accommodation. Some tenants will want to leave the area for a variety of reasons, such as being closer to family. Others will want to stay in the area for a variety of reasons, for example they may have children at school locally. The tenancy liaison team will meet with you to discuss your needs and work to find a home that meets them. To get in touch with the team, call 0800 801 601

What will the homes be like?

There will be house types for all kinds of families. They will range from one-bedroom to five-bedroom family homes.

Why has the area been chosen?

Mangere is one of several suburbs across Auckland that have similar projects underway or planned. It has been chosen because it has good transport links and community facilities and because the state houses in the area need renewing.

Mangere’s residents have easy access to several major employment centres, including Mangere Centre, Auckland Airport in the south, Otahuhu in the east and Manukau Centre in the south-east. There are two universities nearby – MIT in Manukau Centre and the AUT South Campus in Otara. 

More homes. Great neighbourhoods.

The Mangere Development is part of the Auckland Housing Programme, a government initiative to help Auckland develop as a vibrant city by delivering more quality homes more quickly. Read more.

Who is doing the work?

As of 1 October, Housing New Zealand, HLC and KiwiBuild have come together to form Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities. It brings a more cohesive, joined-up approach to supporting the Government’s priorities for housing and urban development in New Zealand, by contributing to thriving communities that provide people with good quality, affordable housing choices and offer good access to jobs, amenities and services. Kāinga Ora has two key roles: being a world-class public housing landlord and working in partnership to enable, facilitate and build urban development projects of all sizes. We look after several projects around Auckland just like this one including Hobsonville Point, Northcote, Mt Roskill and Oranga developments and will be working with transport agencies, education providers and the community to get the best outcomes for Mangere.
