Property Developments


We have acquired properties across Tāmaki Makaurau to develop and generate important revenue to invest in our hapū. These commercial ventures allow us to achieve our tribal development aspirations, finance positive social services and deliver housing solutions for whānau within our papakāinga.


North Shore

We are in the first of five stages of development on Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei land holdings on the North Shore.  The Hillary Block is one of seven blocks of surplus Navy lands purchased by Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei through its 2012 WAI388 Treaty of Waitangi Settlement.

The SHA was approved in 2016 for a 350-lot development on the Hillary Block.

We are in the early stages of construction with the first 13 homes scheduled for completion in early 2020. To receive regular updates including houses for sale, visit

Kōwhai Ridge

Moire Rd, Massey is a Joint Venture between Fletcher Residential Limited (Trading as Fletcher Living) and Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei Whai Rawa Limited, which resulted in a range of residential homes being  built on former Crown owned land that was enabled by the Crown Release land programme.

Of the 197 homes in the new Kōwhai Ridge Development, 112 new homes have already been completed with the development scheduled for completion by early 2020.


Laurel Street Block, Mt Albert

Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei Whai Rawa Limited owns 3 blocks within the UNITEC Campus, the Laurel Street Block. 

A Resource Consent for the Laurel St block has been lodged which seeks to develop approximately 50-mixed use residential houses on the site.
