Trees, open spaces and a place for the dogs to run and the kids to play are all familiar aspects of a subdivision, but what makes a community are the people who live there. It’s part of our DNA to desire to be safe and healthy at home and to live in a fun place and be connected with our neighbours. It’s natural to want to be part of a genuine community, interacting with other people every day. New Zealand planners carefully focus on creating subdivisions with an attractive environment and amenities so we’re at first happy to plan a home there, and then second, we flourish as part of the community once we move in.
Considerations for a successful subdivision include the diversity of open public spaces. It’s important to present a welcoming atmosphere, achieved with plenty of trees, greenery and pleasing natural components. Parks, playgrounds, and bike paths encourage healthy living and are appealing to people who have an active lifestyle or aspire to be more active. The ability to stroll safely on a spacious footpath can’t be underrated!
Convenience and comfort are important for residents, too, as our lives become ever busier. Such aspects as the proximity to schools and childcare and amenities such as a supermarket and food stores, hospitality venues, and a medical centre form a crucial part of people’s decision-making about where to live.
These considerations are at the heart of where we build Generation homes. We don’t just build homes, we build communities, and our success is built on our strong family values.
It takes great skill to develop an inviting subdivision where people can envision themselves thriving in their new home and enjoying a real sense of belonging. In contrast to planned modern subdivisions, older suburbs usually have evolved gradually in an ad-hoc fashion and often have outgrown the capacity of their local schools, shops and parks. Amenities are not necessarily arranged in a practical or easily accessible manner and often these older areas feature aging infrastructure.
In a new neighbourhood, you will watch the green spaces grow up around you and take advantage of the latest in healthy and sustainable homes which are warm and dry no matter the season. New subdivisions also have the benefit of utilising the latest in-home building technology and design. New homes also cut down on the amount of maintenance required, which means you have more time to enjoy your weekends in your neighbourhood or further afield.
It creates great pride for the Generation Homes team around New Zealand to be establishing the communities that new home buyers call home. For example, the team is building in stage 60 of the Golden Sands subdivision in Papamoa in the Bay of Plenty. Yes – that’s stage 60 of a community which was first created in 2001.
Two subdivisions with Generation Homes house and land packages in stage four of the communities are Parkview at Helensville, Auckland North and Kahawai Point at Glenbrook, Hamilton & Waikato North. Peakedale Estate in Matamata, Waikato is now in stage 4, aswell as The Landing in One Treepoint, Northland in stages 5 and 6.
The Landing subdivision in Northland.
At Milldale in Silverdale, Auckland North, the communituy is in its first stage, similar to Park Green in Karaka, Auckland South. Ngaroto Estate in Taupo has new house and land packages available as the community is extended. Rolleston is tipped as one of New Zealand’s fastest growing towns. Generation Homes features house and land packages there near the motorway to Christchurch – in the Acland Park and Faringdon subdivisions.
These communities are now home to many of our customers.
