One Hundred Homes Sold at Hobsonville Point

Auckland’s newest coastal community celebrates the 100th home going unconditional


Hobsonville Point, Auckland’s newest coastal community, is pleased to announce the 100th home has been sold since the Show Homes and Project Information Centre opened in November 2011.

As many as 3,000 new homes will eventually be built at the site that has now become recognised as one of New Zealand’s most desirable and sustainable residential housing communities.

AVJennings’ Project Director for the development, Rodney Chadwick, says sales have continued to sit above industry norms.

“When designing the development, we put a great deal of effort into understanding what New Zealanders want from their new homes and communities. Having one hundred homes go unconditional in just over a year, combined with the positive feedback from new residents, confirms we are on the right track,” says Mr Chadwick.

Mr Chadwick says the community is also perfectly placed to meet the growing demands of the extra 500,000 new residents expected in Auckland in 2031.

“Aucklanders need to re-focus their home-buyer needs in light of the housing shortage forecast. A quarter acre backyard needs to be sacrificed for a future proofed home that’s affordable.
“With a 25 minute ferry to the city, two schools and a buzzing wharf development opening over the next two years, Hobsonville Point is the future of wider Auckland living,” concludes Mr Chadwick.

Gordon Campbell:
On The Kim Regime

During the Cuban Missile Crisis, the US had a very clear objective and eventually offered a quid pro quo of the removal of some of its own missiles from Turkey. This time, there’s no clarity about what the US is seeking, or offering.

It hasn’t helped that the US and the global media consistently agree on calling North Korea and its leadership “crazy” and “irrational” and urging it to “come to its senses”. When you treat your opponent as being beyond reason, it gets hard to comprehend what their strategy is, let alone work out the terms of a viable compromise. More>>
