Hobsonville Point is a master planned development, meaning that an overall plan guides the entire project. Each precinct is also planned and designed in detail and the required consents are applied for from Auckland Council. Each consent identifies locations for homes, schools, retail, offices and other non-residential activities within the area. Locations for neighbourhood parks, reserves, walkways and cycleways, bus stops and the main road network are also identified. The resulting document is called a ‘Comprehensive Development Plan’. It includes development controls, such as building heights and site coverage (what percentage of the lot can be covered by a home/building).

The Buckley A neighbourhood is the heart of Hobsonville Point. The first to be developed at Hobsonville Point, starting in 2008, The precinct is well established with completed roads, mature landscaping and a range of types of homes, including stand alone homes, terraces and apartments.

Buckley A is the home of Catalina Café, Hobsonville Point Park and its steel seedpod playground, and Hobsonville Point Primary School.

Buckley’s master Developer, AVJennings, is now working on Buckley B and there are a range of homes in this neighbourhood for sale off the plan. This neighbourhood has a focus on providing a range of homes priced at or below the median for the area. Buckley B includes Hobsonville Point Secondary School, which opened in 2014. 



The Sunderland neighbourhood has been developed by Willis Bond & Co. This north-facing precinct includes 19 refurbished heritage homes on Sunderland and Cochrane Avenues.

These old homes and their large gardens lend character to the neighbourhood. Sunderland’s new homes have been designed to complement the old airforce-era houses.



The Hudson precinct is being developed by Classic Group and consists of three neighbourhoods close to the water’s edge, the coastal walkway and the heritage mansion, Mill House, with its century-old gardens.

Construction is well underway in the Heritage neighbourhood with the Gardens and Marine neighbourhoods to follow soon. These neighbourhoods are a very short walk from the Catalina Bay eateries, bars and Farmers Market.

Homes in this precinct are available to purchase off the plan now, including standalone, terraced homes and apartments.



Launch Bay

The historic Marlborough Oval is the focal point of this new 4.2 hectare neighbourhood being developed by Winton.

At the front of the oval on large waterfront sites, are four former Officers’ homes which have had their exteriors renovated and plans drawn up for extensions. These homes are for sale with the consented plans. Winton is underway with the Oval Houses, 12 large four-bedroom homes to the back of the oval facing north over the green sweep of lawn. Winton also has plans for apartments which will make the most of the harbour views from this premium site. At the eastern end of the oval a pocket park includes a play area for young children. Launch Bay is a five minute walk from Catalina Bay’s retail and restaurants via the coastal walkway or the streets.


Catalina Bay

Catalina Bay will form a waterfront commercial, retail and hospitality hub for the community and develop into a vibrant area, with cafés, restaurants, apartments and offices. Developer, Willis Bond & Co, has completed Stage 1 which involved refurbishing and repurposing the heritage buildings on the waterfront.

 These heritage hangars and workshops are now home to a range of great bars, eateries and food and coffee purveyors, including the Catalina Bay Farmers Market and Little Creatures microbrewery. Some of the space is being used for offices and the Sunderland Hangar’s mezzanine has been turned into a co-working space (above Little Creatures). Willis Bond & Co has now begun on Stage 2 of the development which will create apartments and townhouses on the waterfront.

A daily ferry service to downtown Auckland operates from the wharf at Catalina Bay.  



Catalina precinct is situated in the north east of the peninsula, and is bordered by the amazing 11ha Te Onekiritea Point (Bomb Point) which is being kept as parkland.

A central tree-lined avenue runs through the heart of Catalina precinct, from Hobsonville Point Road to Bomb Point and the harbour. The precinct is 31ha, including Bomb Point, and the neighbourhood includes a mix of apartments, terraces and stand alone houses; a total of 450 homes. AVJennings, master developers of Buckley precinct, is also overseeing the development of Catalina precinct.

Catalina precinct’s overarching characteristic is ‘green,’ with more than two thirds of the land’s perimeter bounded by open space. Between the Primary School grounds, the coastal wetlands, Bomb Point and the bush-clad gully that borders the precinct’s southern side, homes in Catalina enjoy a variety of beautiful views and easy access to the best outdoor experiences Hobsonville Point has to offer, such as walking, biking, boating and kayaking.


Te Uru

The Te Uru Precinct is next to the Hobsonville village and shops and close to the Hobsonville Point Secondary School with easy access to both the northwestern motorway (SH 16) and Upper Harbour Highway which links to State Highway 1.

The precinct will include a mix of homes and retail, commercial and community facilities. Te Uru will also include homes priced at or below the median house price.



Waterford on Hobsonville Point is a premium retirement village that fosters a sense of belonging, while returning social and environmental benefits to residents and the broader community.

The vision for Waterford is to build a ‘village within a village’ at Hobsonville Point. The village is located on Buckley Avenue, over the road from Catalina Café. The coastal walkway runs right past the village as it winds it way down to the Catalina Bay waterfront, about a 15-minute walk away. The village has 64 villas, which are all complete, and 90 apartments under construction and selling now. Waterford is being developed by Classic Life.
