Traditionally, Aucklanders’ idea of ‘home’ has been a standalone house on a big section in the suburbs. Over time that house has become bigger, more expensive and further away from the city.
But more recently our lifestyles have changed, and the housing market is changing with them. Smart-sized options that make great use of space - and are more suited to modern life - are popping up in desirable central locations, like the Roskill area.
Right now there are thousands of new homes planned for Mount Roskill, Ōwairaka and the wider Roskill area, including the kind of high quality apartments, terraces and ‘walk ups’ that are commonly found in the world’s most forward-thinking cities. Plans to revamp and expand popular public spaces and amenities in these already thriving neighbourhoods are underway, and are set to make Roskill one of the most sought-after places to live in Auckland.
