It’s our biggest development yet – and our first foray into on-the-move Onehunga.

So let us introduce you to Manaaki. It's our 16th project and takes our commitment to lifestyle and community to new heights. There's a pool, subtropical gardens, a ranch-sized residents' lounge and an in-house cafe where you can caffeinate like a boss. 'More!' you said, 'More!' So we added four work-from-home spaces where our residents can enjoy the camaraderie of the office, without the commute (perhaps even in their PJs... or perhaps not).

Manaaki offers a range of 1, 1+study and 2-bedroom bases but also something new: a number of 3-bedroom apartments, perfect for families, David-Brent-like entertainers, home library hounds and hoarders with lots of stuff.

Set beside a secret park, bordered by a no-exit cul-de-sac, Manaaki is 400m from Onehunga Mall, the wonderful (and wonderfully random) main street that centres Auckland's most characterful suburb. With the unmistakable grandeur that comes with being one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods, leavened with a little light industrial grit, Onehunga has it all.

Expected completion mid-2023.

How to Buy


Think Ockham and you possibly think brick. It's no secret we favour classic timeless materials, partly because they're enduring and low maintenance, partly because they look beautiful.

Manaaki is faithful to our blueprint, but with a tweak. We wanted it to look different. We wanted it to look light. And so our architectural team began looking at glazed, glossy bricks and a pastel colour palette – baby blue, mint green, pink, lilac and lemon.

The colours are reminiscent of the five fishing villages of the Cinque Terre on the Italian Riveria, but also a world heritage treasure closer to home. These vibrant colours were also used here at home in Napier on their gorgeous art deco buildings following the 1931 earthquake.

Location Guide

Onehunga: Loveable, Liveable, Laudable.

Its geographic endowment – just 8km from the CBD, 9km to the airport – ensures Onehunga is the centre of attention, “the beating heart of everything that’s good about Auckland” (so saith The Spinoff ). A little grand, a little gritty (and sprinkled with spirit and verve), Onehunga has it all.
