The Line Epping area of Glen Innes is just minutes’ walk from a vibrant town centre, but woven through with plentiful natural spaces.

One hundred and twenty-two modern, beautiful new homes are coming to the area, and with them big improvements to infrastructure, parks, and the natural environment. Tree-lined streets and boardwalks running alongside restored waterways will provide a green route into town. Safe, inviting parks and playgrounds will be within easy reach from every home.

Shared, inviting green spaces

The Line Epping neighbourhood runs alongside Taniwha Reserve, a place whose history is matched only by its potential. In partnership with Auckland Council and Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board, the Tāmaki regeneration programme is making significant improvements to this community treasure. Omaru Creek will be ‘daylighted’ (returned to the surface) and restored through extensive native planting on its banks. Boardwalks will weave their way through the reserve, past play spaces, places to gather, and places to rest. When finished, Line Epping residents will be able to enjoy a pleasant stroll through Taniwha Reserve and Maybury Reserve (which will also be upgraded) to Ruapotaka Marae and the Glen Innes Town Centre. Work has been underway for three years and is nearly complete.

Living streets

Research shows that when streets are safer and more attractive, people tend to walk or choose public transport more often, and spend more time getting to know their neighbours. In the Line Epping neighbourhood, three key roads (Epping Street, Delemere Place and Harlow Street) will be upgraded by Auckland Transport into green ‘living streets’, where pedestrians are given priority, children can play and cycle freely, and where it’s safe to cross the road wherever you are.

Get your urban fix

Even though it’s only a 12 minute train ride to downtown Auckland from Line Epping, you don’t have to venture that far to get your urban fix. Glen Innes town centre, with its burgeoning arts scene and colourful shops and eateries, is just a seven minute walk away. We’re working in partnership with Mana Whenua, local entrepreneurs, the Maungakieke-Tāmaki Local Board and the Glen Innes Business Association to bring new life to the Glen Innes town centre while retaining its special character.

A neighbourhood for everyone

Line Epping is a place where everyone is welcome, no matter their age, background or life stage. Our builder partners Fletcher Living and New Ground Living are building a total of new high quality 122 homes here, including public housing homes and secure, professionally-managed long term rentals. Homes range in size from one-bedroom to five-bedroom for whānau of all sizes.

Secure Rental Homes by New Ground Living

New Ground Living and their iwi investor partner, Hapai Housing LP, are building 50 homes purpose-built for renting on Line Road. They offer a secure long-term lease of 3-7 years, which tenants can choose to end at any time should their situation change. These beautiful one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and duplexes, featuring large-scale Māori art, are healthy and built from quality, timeless materials. They’ll be professionally-managed with a comprehensive, ongoing maintenance program to keep them at their best. Rent will be set at the market rate, and then increased no more than once per year, in line with inflation.

Construction is underway, with an estimated completion of mid 2023.

Open Market and Public Housing Homes by Fletcher Living

Our builder partner Fletcher Living is building 19 public housing homes (managed by Tāmaki Housing), and 53 open market homes in the Line Epping neighbourhood. The homes are a mix of terraces and standalone homes, ranging in size from two- to five-bedrooms. These homes will be well suited for everyone - from young couples to families who need a little more space. There are also great options for those looking to downsize with a range of low maintenance, modern new homes to choose from. Open market homes will be released for sale in stages by Fletcher Living, with the next homes released in early 2022.

Twenty-seven homes complete. Remainder estimated completion from mid to late 2022.

A total of 10,500 homes will be built in Tāmaki to suit whānau of all sizes and stages, including public housing homes, secure long-term rentals, and affordable homes for people with a connection to Tāmaki.
