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. Over the next 10-15 years, the Roskill Development will see a range of apartments (including more affordable apartments) suitable for all ages and stages delivered to the area. Keep reading to see why you’ll want to get ready to nab one for yourself.



Three reasons to love apartment life in Roskill

Live close to the good stuff

Which would you prefer - empty suburban streets and gruelling commutes, or vibrant communities and local amenities? Roskill is home to great schools, parks, and an ever-growing plethora of hot dining destinations. At the centre of the suburb is the Te Auaunga (Oakley Creek), a 1.5km stretch of the stream that connects Roskill locals to nature and each other. Should you need to venture further, you’re just a 15 minute drive from the Auckland CBD.

Keep your weekends free and costs low

Apartments use land more efficiently, so they’re generally cheaper to buy than a standalone home. What’s more, smaller spaces mean less maintenance, especially when you buy an apartment in Roskill. All new homes built as part of the development must meet a 6 (or above) Homestar rating, meaning they’re better quality and cheaper to run than a standard home built to the New Zealand building code. Ditch the DIY (and the lawnmower) and spend more time and money doing the things you love most.

Enjoy beautiful spaces, smart design, and quality homes

The best apartments make effective use of space so that each and every home is both functional and beautiful. That’s why the Roskill Development works with reputable building companies that have long-standing track records for delivering quality, thoughtful homes. Not only are their apartments architecturally-designed to suit a range of modern lifestyles, they’re built using durable materials that stand the test of time (and look great too).

Meet Alex and Matilda, apartment lovers

Over the next few 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.

Alex and Matilda bought their first home - a KiwiBuild apartment in the Kāinga Ora-led Roskill Development. “We could see KiwiBuild was the best way for us to purchase a house in Auckland,” Alex says. “And not have a massive mortgage,” Matilda adds.
