About Us

Fletcher Living has delivered a number of high-quality and successful apartment buildings as part of our residential communities in Auckland and Canterbury since 2017.  While terrace houses will remain a key component of the market for new home builds, there’s a growing demand for higher density homes to help address population growth and affordability in Auckland.

We’ve launched a dedicated business unit to manage the planning, delivery and sale of our Auckland-based apartments projects. We have several projects already in the pipeline, some of which will be developed within our existing communities, while others will be on newly acquired sites. This is an exciting opportunity to help establish and drive the apartments business.
