Research Publication: Aucklanders warming to higher density living
John Polkinghorne

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.

Research Publication: 25 lucrative property trends
John Polkinghorne

You could call this issue of Constructive Thinking a “cheat sheet” for what you should be doing with your money. A full blown list of the New Zealand property trends that are poised to make people billions.

To us, this is a compilation of what we talk about around RCG. It’s both inspiration and robust statistics - two things that play a big part in what we do best. You can’t create a commercially successful environment without a bit of both.

The impact of fuel spending on development
John Polkinghorne

New Zealanders are driving less, and using less petrol than a decade ago, but the cost has gone from $3.8b to $7.8b a year.

We've examined how much disposable spending has “gone up in smoke” rather than into investments, savings or shop tills.

In the launch issue of our publication, Constructive Thinking, we take a look at how much Aucklanders spend in petrol stations: analysing which areas spend up big, and what influence demographic factors have.

United We Stand, Divided We Fall: The Auckland Unitary Plan
John Lenihan

In 2010, Auckland governance was overhauled as seven district councils and a regional council combined to form the Auckland Council.

The new Council has been busy in the last three years, with the substantial task of replacing the old district and regional plans with a single plan, the Auckland Unitary Plan.

Released as a draft on March 15th 2013, The Plan has been a hot topic in the media ever since.
