Mangawhai’s natural environment will inspire and lead the project.


Mangawhai Central will enhance the story.

Positioned just over an hour north of Auckland, Mangawhai is a vibrant community where residents enjoy a relaxed coastal and country lifestyle. Mangawhai Central will enhance this story.

With a vision of supporting future growth, this exciting development will nurture change while respecting the unique character and heritage of Mangawhai.

Playing centre stage along a causeway, Mangawhai Central will be the heartbeat of the area, designed to include a town square, supermarket, hardware store, a service zone precinct, and future provisions for schooling, retirement living and health care. These amenities will be supported by the creation of residential sites.

Designed to blend sensitively amongst a coastal backdrop, Mangawhai Central aims to be a showcase in sustainable, high-quality living.

Land sizing and number of available sites are yet to be finalised. The stunning harbour and natural setting will inspire the project from an architectural viewpoint.


Education is a critical factor for any family choosing to reside in Mangawhai. With a burgeoning demand for secondary schooling on the doorstep and the local primary school closed for out of zone families, Mangawhai Central is engaging with relevant parties to explore future solutions.

Retirement Village

Mangawhai’s aging residents have expressed their desire to stay in the area if the right lifestyle and care is available. Mangawhai Central is exploring the ideal retirement village model and is currently engaged in discussions with NZ’s major aged-care operators.

Medical Centre

As the area continues to grow, provisions for health care will be vital. Mangawhai Central has the capacity to accommodate a full-service model and is actively exploring suitable options.

Recreational Facilities

Mangawhai has a diverse range of outdoor facilities to celebrate a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle. Mangawhai Central will actively consult with residents about exciting new ideas, while working in harmony with what is already in place.


The convenience of having a supermarket within the neighbourhood will be a welcome amenity for residents. Appointed grocery supplier, New World, is excited about a store opening in late 2021.
