Important history at Auckland air force base preserved


Asserting the long-standing prestige of Hobsonville Point and lining the stunning waterfront, sits four distinguished Officer Houses built in the 1930s on what was the grounds of the Auckland air force base. The preservation of the heritage homes recognises the richness of the site’s history and celebrates its importance amongst the Launch Bay and wider Hobsonville Point community.

The onsite pinnacle for servicemen in the yesteryears, each heritage house has their own prime waterfront exclusive freehold 1,100m2 site (more or less) alongside the Oval, offering a spacious and established setting within the Launch Bay precinct. The heritage homes have recently had exterior renovations completed with new triple car garaging installed, along with landscaping and new driveways. Resource consent has already been granted for plans to maximise living areas and adapt to make the most of modern living for new owners.

Launch Bay is perfectly positioned to enjoy village life at Hobsonville Point. Right next door, Catalina Bay attracts residents and visitors with its incredible aroma of coffee, high-quality eateries and fresh produce available at the weekly farmers market. With another high-profile establishment coming in the new year to join the likes of Fabric Café and most recently, Siamese Doll, Hobsonville Point is becoming an even more enticing place to linger.

A short wander from the central Oval is the site currently known as Launch Road East. The site will encompass a cluster of varying sized adjoined buildings, including the tallest building at Hobsonville Point, a 15 storey tower. The tower will be a prominent landmark building and an attractive opportunity for those looking for all the benefits of high-quality apartment living with outstanding harbour views.

Launch Road East was recently granted resource consent to proceed. This concludes the Launch Bay consent process and enables Winton to execute the master-plan in its entirety to deliver a thoughtfully designed community that complements the wider Hobsonville Point village.
