The Manukau transformation area

The Manukau transformation area - Manukau

Home to about 6,000 residents and 20,000 workers, the situation in Manukau and the surrounding South Auckland area is unique. The area represents Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland’s biggest opportunity, yet faces significant challenges too.

Land for the Manukau transformation extends over 600ha. It covers the whole metropolitan centre, the Manukau Sports Bowl and the Wiri suburban neighbourhood to the south, including the large 49-hectare Manukau Super Clinic site.

Manukau Central is just that – described as the centre of the transformation area, and defined as within an 800m radius or 10 minute walk of the train station.
