Housing & construction

If you’re involved in housing and construction in any capacity – make a beeline for Porirua. We have a huge amount of development underway – and business is booming.

Kenepuru Landing

Carrus Developments is the company behind much of the residential construction in Porirua. Together with Ngāti Toa, the local development powerhouse is developing more than 600 houses over a 50 ha site in Kenepuru. The development will provide affordable housing in the form of medium-density and standalone homes. It’s a local affair with Elsdon-based Grove Homes selected as one of the preferred builders for the project. Read more

Aotea, Porirua

If Carrus Developments sounds familiar, it is because they are the firm behind the development of Aotea, Porirua. Back in 2004, Porirua City was looking to establish more housing for its growing population. We selected Carrus Developments for the challenge. Aotea is now one of the most popular suburbs in Porirua with more than 1000 homes – many in the high-end of the market, as well as playgrounds, parks, and enviable community facilities. 


“I’d like to think we have transformed residential housing in Porirua and have been an important contributor to the city’s income, and job creation.” – Paul Adams, Chief Executive, Carrus Developments.
