The Brewer Davidson offices will be closed from Thursday 21st Dec, and we will reopen again on Monday 8th January 2024.

Construction begins at Reiputa!

Within a month, construction begins on Reiputa, a medium density development providing 297 high quality Build-to-Rent apartments in Mt Wellington.

Brewer Davidson are excited to team up with Simplicity Living to begin work on Aotearoa’s largest Build-to-Rent development to date!

As well as 297 apartments built to a Homestar Rating, this development includes large central gardens, communal recreation facilities and is located only minutes away from the Panmure train station.

Medium Density Living at Hinaki Development Highlighted

The promise of medium-density housing in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland is becoming a reality, as highlighted through Brewer Davidson’s and Simplicity Living’s recently opened Hinaki development, in a Stuff article!

The stuff article focuses on the experience of one resident of the Hinaki development, who through our medium density developments, was able to put a deposit on his first affordable home in Auckland, and how he has adapted to medium-density living and its sense of community.

We are excited to see images of our Hinaki development in use, showing shared amenities such as a bike shed for residents and shared gardens!

Brewer Davidson Designs highlighted in Launch of Simplicity Living’s Major Build to Rent Housing Programme

Brewer Davidson is excited for our designs to be showcased in a recently published press release for Simplicity Living. NZ Living and Simplicity announced they are combining to form Simplicity Living, a significant build to rent housing programme in New Zealand.


The long-term vision for Simplicity Living is to build high quality, affordable homes for rent across the country. Shane Brealey, Managing Director NZ Living, saying ‘Simplicity shares our long-term vision. With our skill in building and managing, and their ability to fund at scale, we are well-placed to make a positive difference in the housing sector.’  


Both projects illustrated in this press release are Brewer Davidson designs; one being NZ Living’s Kupenga Development in Point England and the other, the recently completed ARC Selwyn Street Development in Onehunga. 

Combined, these projects represent 159 apartments in the build to rent programme.


In a previous blog post, our ARC Selwyn Street Development was highlighted as one of New Zealand's first build-to-rent developments.
