Types of homes

The Oranga Development includes a range of housing types and sizes to suit all sizes of households. There will be a mix of standalone homes, terraced homes, and duplex units, ranging from one to five bedrooms. Providing a variety of housing types gives Aucklanders a better chance of finding the right home for their age and stage of life, in the price bracket they can afford.


Homes in the more affordable price range 

Roughly a third of the 1,200 new homes will be sold on the open market. A further third will be sold as more affordable options, and the final third will be Kāinga Ora social homes.

Homes in more affordable price ranges are a priority within the Oranga Development. There will be a number of options for ordinary Kiwi homebuyers, including those looking for their first home.

Easier on the planet and your pocket 

The new homes being built in Oranga will meet high sustainability measures that go beyond what is required by the Building Code.

These measures include:

  • insulation and double glazing above the Building Code – makes homes warm and less expensive to heat
  • houses and apartments designed to take advantage of the sun to create living spaces that are warm and light wherever possible
  • energy efficient lights
  • water efficient showers, toilets and taps

The homes are well designed and visually appealing, helping to improve the appearance of the existing neighbourhood while making better use of the limited land available in Auckland.


Apartments provide low maintenance living for small households. Research has shown that smaller, low-rise apartment buildings like the ones being designed for Oranga can facilitate a sense of community. Some of the apartments will be ‘walk-ups’, i.e. on level two or three of an apartment building and you walk up some stairs to reach them.


Terraced homes are joined with their neighbour on one or both sides to form a row. They are popular because they use land more efficiently and so are more affordable than standalone homes.


Standalone homes are detached from their neighbours. These types of homes don’t use land as efficiently as apartments or terraced housing so there will be less of them built as part of the Oranga Development.


Duplex homes are two family homes connected by a shared wall. Like terrace homes, they are popular because they use land more efficiently and so are more affordable than standalone homes.

Long Term Rentals

Long Term Rentals offer tenants greater security and stability, with a rental term for several years. They’re professionally managed, which helps add to the certainty and peace of mind which comes with the long lease.
