Hobsonville Point is being developed in stages and the land has been divided into precincts, as shown here.

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). To read the Comprehensive Development Plans for the precincts currently being developed, go to Publications.

Buckley A

Development of the Buckley A neighbourhood began in 2008 under the management of master developer AVJennings. Now nearing completion, the precinct offers a wide variety of high quality, warm, healthy and energy efficient homes, including a small number of Axis Series affordable homes.

The Buckley A precinct includes the Hobsonville Point Primary School and Hobsonville Point Park with its fantastic sculptural playground based on native seed pods. The Catalina Café is next door to the playground.



Buckley B

Construction is underway on new apartments and terraced homes in the first stage of Buckley B’s development.

The second stage of this precinct also includes homes in the Median Priced Programme that are already available to buy off the plan. Homes in this programme will be mainly terraces or apartments, from two to four bedrooms and the first homes are expected to be completed from mid 2018.

Buckley B includes the Hobsonville Point Secondary School, which opened in January 2014.


Waterford forms part of the Sunderland neighbourhood and is being developed as a retirement community. The Waterford villas are complete and sold and Manor Group is well underway with the construction of 91 apartments. 



Hobsonville Land Company has formed a partnership with Willis Bond to develop this north-facing land with a focus on retaining and enhancing the area's heritage features. A number of heritage homes have been renovated, as have several ex-military buildings. New homes have been designed to complement the existing air force-era housing. 

The Sunderland precinct is near completion with only a few more homes available for purchase, including the Quartermaster Apartments. 



The Hudson precinct is being developed by Classic Group and consists of three neighbourhoods close to the water’s edge. 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 waterfront. 

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



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, has begun Stage 1 which involves refurbishing and repurposing the heritage buildings.

Expression of interest for commercial leases and the apartments are being accepted by Willis Bond & Co now. 

 A commuter ferry service to downtown Auckland operates from the new wharf at Catalina Bay. The Fabric Bay is now home to Fabric Café Bistro while only a few doors down, the Catalina Bay Farmers Market sells all you need to make your own culinary creations.



The Catalina Precinct has a similar mix of homes to the Buckley A and B neighbourhoods. The eastern end of the precinct is adjacent to Te Onekiritea Park (Bomb Point), an 11 ha waterfront park. The southern edge borders Te Ara Manawa o Onekiritea, the 4.8km coastal walkway that forms a loop around much of Hobsonville Point. 

Stage one of the Catalina precinct is near completion. Homes in stages two and three are on the market now. 


Te Uru

The Te Uru Precinct is adjacent to the Hobsonville village and shops. Civil works for Te Uru are in progress. 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. 

Launch Bay

Winton Partners, the developer of Launch Bay (formerly the Marlbourough precinct), have made the historic Marlborough Oval the focal point of this planned new neighbourhood near the harbour’s edge. Plans are well underway for a variety of apartments, standalone homes and the existing former Officer's houses. Construction is expected to start in 2019 with the first apartments and the Officer's houses to come on the market in 2018.
