The plan for Ormiston town centre

The plan for Ormiston town centre - Ormiston

With the surrounding Flatbush area being home to at least 36,000 people in the future, the masterplan for the Ormiston development outlines a town centre of which residents can be proud. It offers true Kiwi lifestyle and a place with neighbourhood values at its heart.

The project is supported by:

  • Excellent urban design – the masterplan makes the most of the surrounding environment to create a community that offers a work, live and play lifestyle.
  • The use of Auckland Council land to create new housing for rising demand.
  • Creation of a sustainable environment – this gives people access to open green spaces, great amenities, and recreational opportunities.

Ormiston’s town centre development also contributes towards region-wide outcomes under the Auckland Plan 2050, and in its community under the Howick Local Board Plan.
