Living in the city

As recently as 2005, only around 20,000 people called the city centre home - the most recent numbers show the current residential population has reached almost 40,000. This rate of growth is far greater than that of Auckland as a whole.*

As the balance shifts further towards this being a place for people, we think the future looks bright for a city centre that’s more alive, enjoyable and successful than ever.
