Kowhai Downs

Creating a welcome point of difference

Kowhai Downs is an upmarket rural residential development located in Pokeno, South of Auckland. Featuring 150 sections of 2500 - 8000 square metres each, Kowhai Downs is a rarity in the Auckland area offering a lifestyle opportunity within reach of the city.

From the outset, our aim with Kowhai Downs was to create a unique offering. Instead of developing the land into a typical high-density subdivision, we diversified into large blocks of land in a market that didn’t expect it. The design and development process has been carefully managed to ensure a natural, park-like setting that complements its surroundings.

This result is a welcome point of difference – an upmarket, high-quality development that can withstand the prices of the Auckland market. Demand has reflected the offering, and all sections were sold during the pre-sell process. Kowhai Downs is due for completion in 2017.
