Waipa's solid growth in the number of new homes continues to rise. Waipa District Council's growth figures suggest Cambridge is expected to absorb an extra 14,000 people by 2050.
Its major drawcard is its close proximity to Hamilton and Tauranga and easy commute to Auckland.
Capitalising on the strong demand for new properties in the central-North Island is top 10 residential builder Generation Homes. The company opened its new 245sqm, four bedroom in Cambridge North's Landon Park.
Generation's Waipa-Coromandel director Trevor Roberts said prices in Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranga were the motivator to relocate to more "reasonably priced centres".
