  • What's happening?

    The Mangere Development project will bring 10,000 new homes to the greater Mangere area and take 10-15 years to complete. New amenities will be built and existing streets and amenities upgraded. The project is aimed at supporting Auckland to grow as a modern, thriving, compact city.

  • 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.

  • 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 – and 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.

  • 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.

  • Who is running the project?

    Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities is running the project. We work with agencies such as Auckland Transport, Auckland Council and the Ministry of Education to make the most of opportunities to improve infrastructure and facilities for the greater Roskill area.
