New, warm, dry homes for Oranga

Work is underway for the Oranga Development which will bring new warm, healthy homes to Oranga. Over the next eight years the development will see around 400 old state homes replaced with around 1,200 new homes. By using the land more efficiently than we did back in the 1940s and 50s when the original houses were built, we will be able to increase the number of state homes available and also build much-needed new homes for the Auckland housing market. Homes in more affordable price ranges will also be a priority within the Oranga Development. We will also be improving some of the existing streets and parks in the neighbourhood. Work is underway to upgrade the neighbourhood's infrastructure which will replace old pipes, underground power lines and improve berms and footpaths. Check out our infrastructure video here, which gives a great overview of what’s involved in the works and how they’ll benefit the community for years to come. For more information, visit our friendly team at Oranga Information Centre, 34B Oranga Avenue, Thursday-Saturday 10am-4pm.

Why has the area been chosen?

Oranga is one of several suburbs across Auckland that has similar projects underway or planned. It has been chosen because it has good transport links and community facilities and because the state houses in the area need renewing.

Oranga residents have easy access to employment hubs Te Papapa and Penrose, and are close to Onehunga town centre and Auckland’s premier park, Maungakiekie. It is close to residential suburbs One Tree Hill, Greenlane, Ellerslie, and Royal Oak, all with established village centres.

More homes. Great neighbourhoods.

The Oranga Development is part of the Auckland Housing Programme, a government initiative to help Auckland develop as a vibrant city by delivering more quality homes more quickly. Read more.

How will the community benefit?

The Oranga Development will bring several benefits to the community. There will be a greater choice of high quality housing available. High quality homes are healthy homes. The streets, parks and public open space near the new housing will be upgraded. New homes will bring new people to the area to invest in and contribute to the community. This is good for local businesses and schools. The development will create jobs for local people and pathways to home ownership.

What happens to state housing tenants?

We’re building more state homes than we are taking away. If you are a tenant in Oranga you may need to move to different accommodation. Should redevelopments require you to relocate, the Tenant Rehoushing Team will be in touch from the very early stages of planning and will work closely with you to support you into an alternative home, taking into account community links and schooling. If the Tenant Rehousing Team has not spoken to you personally, you are not impacted by current stages of development. Should you be impacted in the future your Tenant Liaison Officer will meet with you face to face at the earliest possible time. We will be updating the website as the project progresses but in the meantime, to get in touch with the team call 0800 801 601.

What will the homes be like?

There will be house types for all kinds of families. They will range from one-bedroom to five-bedroom family homes. Below are some of the homes from other projects currently underway.

Who is doing the work?

As of 1 October, Housing New Zealand, HLC and KiwiBuild have come together to form Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities. It brings a more cohesive, joined-up approach to supporting the Government’s priorities for housing and urban development in New Zealand, by contributing to thriving communities that provide people with good quality, affordable housing choices and offer good access to jobs, amenities and services. Kāinga Ora has two key roles: being a world-class public housing landlord and working in partnership to enable, facilitate and build urban development projects of all sizes. We look after several projects around Auckland just like this one including Hobsonville Point, Northcote, Mt Roskill and Mangere developments and will be working with transport agencies, education providers and the community to get the best outcomes for Oranga.

FAQ's

We’ve put together this handy top 10 FAQs to answer some of the common questions we are asked about the changes happening in your neighbourhood. If you’d like to know more, please come and have a chat to one of the team at the Information Centre.
  • What’s happening in Oranga?

    The Oranga Development will bring around 1,200 new warm dry homes to Oranga over the next eight years. Around 400 state homes will be replaced with around 400 state homes and 800 market and affordable homes, including KiwiBuild. We will also be improving some of the existing streets, parks and public spaces. The development is aimed at supporting Auckland to grow as a modern, thriving, compact city.

  • What is happening with infrastructure upgrades?

    Our civil works alliance Piritahi has started utility (water, power and gas) upgrades in Waitangi Road. This involves digging trenches to replace old pipes, undergrounding power lines and improving berms and footpaths. The work will be completed in around 200 metre sections. Traffic management will be in place for the safety of road users.

    For any questions please contact Piritahi on 0508 PIRITAHI or oranga@piritahi.co.nz

    Head to our news section to check out the video about these works and how they’ll benefit the community.

  • Why is state housing being built first? Why are you not mixing the state and market housing together?

    Stage 1 and 2 of the development will be state homes, with future stages focusing on private and more affordable housing. Doing it in this order provides homes for Kāinga Ora tenants affected by the development, allowing them to stay living in the neighbourhood.

    Our masterplans ensure we have a balance of housing types and mixed communities, while still retaining decent-sized land holdings. This means that the opportunity to redevelop the land will still be available if there is a need for different housing outcomes in the future.

  • When will homes be available to purchase off the plans?

    We’re anticipating homes will be available to purchase off the plans later this year. We will keep you updated on progress. If you haven’t done so already, sign up for regular development updates here on the website and be the first to know when homes are available for purchase.

  • How much will the KiwiBuild homes be? Am I eligible?

    Around 1/3 of the total new homes will be in a more affordable price range, including KiwiBuild homes (1 bedroom homes priced at $500,000, 2 bedrooms at $600,000 and 3 bedrooms at $650,000). The best way to stay up to date is to register on both our website, and the KiwiBuild
    website kiwibuild.govt.nz. To buy a KiwiBuild home you will also need to meet certain criteria which you can also check on their website.

  • What other financial products are available to help me buy a home?

    Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities provides schemes and grants to help you own a home, including First Home Grant and First Home Loan. Kāinga Ora first home decision tool is an easy way to find out which products you could apply for when you’re ready to buy, you can find it here: kaingaora.govt.nz/home-ownership/first-homedecision-tool/.

  • What’s happening with Ferguson Park?

    Ferguson Domain is mostly the responsibility of Auckland Council, however Kāinga Ora is working closely with them to ensure that it’s enhanced. Where Kāinga Ora owns land next to an entrance to the Domain, we are engaging with Council about small land swaps that will allow the entrances to be made more safe and attractive.

    Where Kāinga Ora is building housing alongside the Domain, it will be designed to increase the safety of and access to and from the Domain.

  • Will there be new shops or facilities?

    Kāinga Ora is working with existing business owners to improve their shopfronts and ensure they are aware of our development plans. Street upgrades to Waitangi Road will improve the public space near the existing shops. Kāinga Ora has land near the Oranga Avenue shops and is looking at ways to complement the existing business with opportunities for additional commercial/retail spaces.

  • Will transport plans improve? What about increased traffic in the area?

    We’re working alongside Auckland Transport and others to improve walking, cycling and public transport networks to give residents better transit options. We’re also looking for ways to improve streets and community amenities to get walkways, streets and parks to work better for the community.

  • How can I find out more about the timeline for the project and any updates?

    We will share information as we go, through newsletters, email udateds and here on our website. We also have an information centre, at 34B Oranga Avenue, where you can pop in and chat to the team, or, contact us on info@orangadevelopment.co.nz.
