Arataki Residential Area

The first area set for residential development is Precinct 1, Arataki. This first precinct includes the development of 440 houses and the beginnings of the Port Nikau community.

Construction currently underway

The first stage of Precinct 1 (Stages 1A, 1B, and 1C) will open up about 100 sections. Earthworks and services are currently underway and construction of housing will begin on Stage 1A once earthworks are complete.

Arataki Avenue runs through the centre of Port Nikau and connects the western streets with the town centre and marina on the eastern boundary.

Designing a range of housing options

Port Nikau will reflect the changing housing needs of Whangārei, and New Zealand, incorporating a range of housing options that will be available throughout Arataki, and the wider development. 

Design plans include 2, 3 and 4-bedroom stand-alone houses, terraced houses, apartments and mixed-use home/office type buildings. Waterfront apartments are also planned.

Register your interest

If you are interested in residential building opportunities in Stage 1A and Stage 1B, please provide your details and one of the team will be in touch.

We are looking to collaborate with developers, housing companies, businesses and individuals who recognise the unique urban waterfront living opportunity Port Nikau will provide.
