Four reasons to love apartment life in Mangere

Apartment living won’t break the bank

When it comes to your bank account, an apartment in Mangere is the gift that keeps on giving. Apartments use land more efficiently, so they’re generally cheaper to buy than a standalone house. Apartments in Mangere are also built to a 6 Homestar (or above) rating, so they’re cheaper to run than a house built to the New Zealand Building code, and they use quality materials that need minimal maintenance. All of this, without compromising on location, quality or design.

KiwiBuild apartments are the perfect starter home

The first KiwiBuild apartments in Mangere have just been released, and are available to buy off the plans on 17th November. Designed and built by Mike Greer Homes, and priced form just $500,000, these new homes are an absolute steal. If you're eligible for Kāinga Ora's financial assistance products, you're well on your way to owning your first home.

Minimal maintenance, maximum quality

Our builder partners have proven track records for quality builds that stand the test of time. Each new apartment is architecturally designed and built using durable materials for low-maintenance living. What’s more, they’re new, so you won’t inherit any hidden flaws or risky repair jobs. And if you purchase your new apartment from Mike Greer Homes, you’ll sleep easy with a 10 year Master Build guarantee.

Everything you need is on your doorstep

Apartments in Mangere 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. Catch up with friends at the local park, walk the kids to school, or visit the markets and enjoy the local cuisine. And if you need to venture further, Mangere has great (and improving) public transport links too. Handy.

Over the next ten years, Kāinga Ora’s Urban Development team is bringing a new breed of high quality, boutique apartments to suburbs as diverse as Mangere, Northcote, Hobsonville Point and Mt Roskill. Kāinga Ora has carefully selected the builders who will deliver these apartments, to ensure a consistently high standard in design and durability.

Sophie bought her first home - a KiwiBuild apartment in the Kāinga Ora-led Northcote Development - 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.”
