Research Publication: Aucklanders warming to higher density living

People in Auckland are warming to the idea of living in apartments and terraces. Our research pinpoints the year that construction of attached homes will, for the first time ever, supersede new builds of detached houses.

It’s a significant moment for New Zealand’s largest city, and it’s a shift that will have a rippling effect on property, businesses, our economy, and retail.

In this issue we take a deeper look at who these new urban residents will be; what they like and dislike, and how they differ from a traditional Kiwi household.
