Live in a great little central suburb that’s on the rise.

On the rise to Maungakiekie (One Tree Hill) is a lovely little central suburb many Aucklanders have never heard of. Nestled between Onehunga and Ellerslie villages, close to one of the city’s treasures – Cornwall Park, and with a friendly and welcoming multicultural community, Oranga is a hidden gem. With all of this going for it, Oranga is simply too good not to share. A major redevelopment of the area is now underway. This revitalisation will see upgrades to streets, parks and infrastructure. Aging state housing will make way for around 1200 new, high-quality homes so that more people can enjoy this neighbourhood’s central location and charming, tree-lined streets with views to Maungakiekie and the Manukau Harbour. Don’t miss your chance to buy while Oranga is still more affordable than its neighbours, One Tree Hill and Ellerslie.

If you’re looking at KiwiBuild, you may have been to some open homes and spoken to the builder or developer that is responsible for building them.
