New Zealand has a star city, and it is Tāmaki Makaurau, the Maori name for Auckland. Already the Sail City lords over other NZ cities with its population of 1.4 million residents. Even Wellington, the capital of the Land next to the Land Down Under, is dwarfed by the sheer magnitude of its northern cousin, only managing to corner 200,000 people to stay within its confines.
But its aplomb and resulting world renown that truly sets Auckland apart. Not only has it garnered major awards as a city, this time around it is setting its sights at the top. The good part is you could be part of the Sail City’s success.
Success by Design
Carrying the largest Polynesian population in the country, Auckland has emerged to be the most diverse in the land, reaping global recognition like no other city in this part of the world.
In 2014 alone, Tāmaki Makaurau heaped one global award after the other. Among these are:
- 3rd overall in Mercer Quality of Living Survey
- 10th in the EIU ratings
- 12th in Monocle‘s
What the world does not know is that Auckland did not just winthese awards by accident. Rather, the Sail City made sure various key actions (e.g., city rail link) were implemented. Through the Auckland Plan hatched in 2012, New Zealand’s greatest city created a vision on how to be on top.
Growing by Leaps and Bounds
As if by magic, Auckland’s real estate marketis booming now more than ever. As the sales statistics show, it reflects greater interest from business investors from all over the world – the Chinese including. Naturally,while such real estate frenzy could spur interest in a quality surveyor and other related engineering expertise, it clearly highlights Auckland’s dynamic growth and as a prime candidate for landscape and real estate projects, Cato Bolam Consultants notes.
Without a doubt, the Auckland Planhas worked, and no surprise that Auckland bags the number one most liveable city in the world in the years to come. You could be a part of it, when you invest in one of Auckland’s real estate properties.
