Hobsonville Point is being developed in stages. The land has been divided into precincts. Compare the two plans below to see the progress to date and the development as it will be when complete.

Hobsonville Point is a master planned development. That means 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 Buckley A began in 2008 under the management of master developer AVJennings and is ongoing. The precinct includes a mixture of high quality, warm, healthy and energy efficient homes, including a small number of Axis Series affordable homes. Most of the homes sell off the plan so it pays to get in touch with the builders and find out what is available or due to be released.

The Buckley A precinct includes the Hobsonville Point Primary School and Hobsonville Point Park with its fantastic playground. The Catalina Café is next door.

Buckley B

Planning and infrastructure work is underway so that we can begin to develop Buckley B. This precinct includes Hobsonville Point Secondary School which opened in January 2014.


This section of Sunderland A is being developed as a retirement community. Waterford is underway now and will eventually comprise a mix of villas and apartments, totalling 154 homes.


HLC has formed a partnership with Willis Bond to develop this north-facing land near the water with a focus on retaining and enhancing the area's heritage features. Many of the old homes will be renovated, as will several Air Force era buildings, and historic Mill House. The renovated heritage homes in this precinct have been completed and are currently on the market.


Planning and infrastructure work is underway so that we can begin to develop Sunderland B.

The Landing

The Landing will form a waterfront commercial, retail and hospitality hub for the community and develop into a vibrant area, with cafés, restaurants, apartments and offices. Our plans are still evolving but we expect construction to be underway by 2016. The ferry service to downtown Auckland is already operating from the new wharf at The Landing, and the Seaplane Hangar is the venue for the popular Hobsonville Point Farmers Market every weekend.


Catalina will have a similar mix of homes to Buckley Precinct. The eastern end of the precinct is adjacent to Bomb Point, an 11 ha waterfront park. The southern edge abuts the Coastal Linear Park, a planned 4km walking/cycling/jogging path that forms a loop around the northern and ends of Hobsonville Point. The first homes in this area will be on the market in 2015.

The Village

The Village Precinct is adjacent to the existing Hobsonville shops. Planning for the Village Precinct is in the early stages. It is likely that the precinct will include a mix of homes and retail, commercial and community facilities.
