This development was created by Tamaki Makaurau Community Housing. This is a partnership between Nga Mana Whenua o Tamaki Makaurau – Tamaki Collective, New Zealand Housing Foundation, Te Tumu Kainga (Auckland and Onehunga Hostel Endowment Trust) and CORT Community Housing.


The Waimahia Inlet development partnership demonstrates that not-for-profit organisations can operate in a highly professional way and match commercial entities for drive, focus and outcomes. We have brought together a mix of skills and experience to create an organisation that is capable of undertaking this development programme, capable of operating at this scale, capable of delivering outcomes to the Government on time and with prudent stewardship of funds. 290 new homes are being built on this site south of Clendon, Auckland.

The first nine new homes were completed in August 2015. In May 2016 CORT took possession of another 6 two-bedroom homes, and a three-bedroom home was handed over in March 2017. A further four two-bedroom homes will be completed at the end of 2017.
