Panuku Development Auckland

The Airfields, Hobsonville Point

20 hectares of Council-owned land in the heart of Hobsonville Point is being transformed in to a new residential and mixed use development called the Airfields.

Hobsonville Point is a peninsula that lies in the northern waters of the Waitematā Harbour, a 20-minute drive northwest of Auckland's CBD.

At the Airfields, around 14 hectares is being developed into housing, with a mix of housing types to promote a diverse residential community. Up to six hectares of land is proposed to become a Mixed Use Area.

Being part of a wider master-planned community means the Airfields precinct is perfectly positioned among parks and well-planned roads, schools and community facilities, local jobs and public transport to the CBD. Shopping centres are a short drive away, with a number of local restaurants, bars and cafes close by.

The Airfields will offer a minimum of 10 percent affordable homes as part of the wider development.

Neighbourhoods have been designed to be easy and safe to walk or cycle around. The Airfields is situated close to Upper Harbour’s coastal walks with easy access to the water. The wider community has been planned and built to promote community interaction. 

Airfields masterplan

The Airfields precinct has been designed to integrate into the wider Hobsonville Point and Scott Point developments, and is divided into six sections, or “megalots” with a minimum of 890 dwellings. 

Megalot One

  • AV Jennings was confirmed in April 2016 as the development partner for the first stage of the Airfields precinct which is focused on 1.95 hectares towards the southern edge of the site.

  • The first of 102 homes was completed in December 2017. Read more

Megalots Two, Three and Four

  • Top Garden Property Development (Avanda Group) was confirmed in February 2017 as the development partner for the second stage of the Airfields precinct. Top Garden and its building partners will develop a minimum of 510 homes, of which of which 10% will be affordable housing. Read more.

Megalots Five and Six

  • Megalots Five and Six are envisaged as being developed as a Mixed Use Area, with a view to creating employment and a minimum of 278 new homes. 

Why are we doing this?

Development led by Panuku focusses on areas identified in the Auckland Plan where there is a level of community need, including Hobsonville Point.

A priority for Panuku is helping to facilitate an increase in housing supply, particularly affordable housing. The Airfields precinct will deliver up to 890 new homes to Auckland.
