A home at Paerata Rise


Blending the best of Franklin’s semi-rural landscape with modern town planning, Paerata Rise is an integrated, livable township located between Karaka and Pukekohe. A 40-minute drive from Central Auckland, approximately 4,500 homes within the Paerata Rise township will each be built to suit the unique specifications of every family who calls Paerata Rise home. Thoughtfully considered outdoor spaces, schools, a retail precinct and transport hub offer a safe, contemporary and convenient lifestyle all residents love. 


A desirable place to live, work, relax and visit.


Our vision is to create a community with the look and feel of an established  country village but with all the modern benefits of an urban environment.  


Paerata Rise is a new build lifestyle township that is being developed between Karaka and Pukekohe, south of Auckland. It will eventually consist of approximately 4,500 homes, built to embrace a commitment to community ethics and modern innovation. Paerata Rise will retain the rural charm of Franklin’s rolling hills and magnificent views through careful town design that makes the most of the area’s natural beauty.


Paerata Rise is designed to adapt to the needs of its diverse range of residents. There will be something for everyone, from playgrounds and sports facilities to modern business hubs. The neighbourhood will be an inclusive community embracing the exceptional natural beauty of New Zealand and the latest technical advances in home design.
