Hamilton city’s latest developments to watch out for

Hamilton is one of the fastest growing cities in New Zealand. The Hamilton council has promised to invest over $2B over the next 10 years in the development of the city, one of the biggest ever capital programmes in NZ. The focus for the council continues to be to make Hamilton a very popular river city and you can see a lot of development coming up along the Waikato River in the next decade. 

With the growth of the city as well as its increase in popularity due to many other reasons such as proximity to big cities, arts and culture, the demand for housing has gone up. So much so that there is a big shortage of vacant lands in Hamilton now. 

However, there are a number of subdivisions popping up in and around Hamilton city, so keep an eye out for some amazing new locations and good house and land packages. Here is a list of new subdivisions in and around Hamilton:

Greenhill Park

Greenhill Park in Hamilton has over 1,800 lots planned, and several hundred new homes already completed. You have the chance to build your ideal new home in an attractive and convenient location.

Spread out over a massive 136 hectares of freehold farmland, Greenhill Park is the only medium-density development of scale in Hamilton.

The entire suburb has been purposefully designed as a fully functioning neighbourhood, with excellent amenities and plenty of green space for its residents to enjoy.

Ruakura Superhub is a project of national significance to re-imagine growth, prosperity and sustainability for generations to come. At 490 hectares, Ruakura Superhub is one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s largest multi-use developments, equivalent to the size of Auckland’s CBD.

Located at the nexus of the golden triangle between Auckland and Tauranga, the Superhub is anchored by an inland port and will include logistics, industrial, commercial, retail, green space, and homes for approximately 4,500 families.
