Building for tomorrow 

Paerata Rise is a new-build lifestyle township being developed between Karaka and Pukekohe, 40km south of Auckland CBD. By 2035 Paerata Rise will consist of approximately 4,500 homes, embracing a steadfast commitment to community ethics and modern innovation.   

Catering to varying budget and lifestyle needs, a wide range of home building options at Paerata Rise means there is something for everyone. With lot sizes ranging from 350m2 to 650m2, this is a residential neighbourhood ideal for a diverse range of residents, from those wishing to purchase their first home, wanting to expand their family, downsize for convenience or establish a new business.  

Nature takes the lead 

Paerata Rise will retain the rural charm of Franklin’s open space, rolling hills and magnificent views through careful urban design that emphasises this area’s natural beauty.
With 300ha of land being developed, 5ha will be devoted to public green spaces, including purpose built walkways, cycleways, picnic, sporting and exercise areas.   

Diversity of design 

Where you live needs to offer more than just a piece of real estate. It is your sanctuary, and where you feel a part of a community. PaerataRise offers just that – an opportunity to design your next home, unique to your specifications.

We say no to the cookie-cutter design you may find in other residential developments, and yes to quality, selection and style. We uphold strict architectural guidelines of our master planned community to ensure a diverse selection of design solutions, quality, safety and value.

These guidelines ensure every new home contributes to the forward-thinking urban design of this community-focused township. 

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

Paerata Rise will be home to a lively and vibrant mix of shops, cafés, restaurants and amenities – all at our community’s finger tips. With increasing urban growth in the area, a railway station and commuter hub have been confirmed to increase transport choices and convenience.  

When it comes to education, both primary schools and secondary schools are planned for Paerata Rise. The existing Wesley College will be moved from its current site, and a new Wesley co-ed high school is confirmed for the Franklin area.  

Pukekohe town centre is five minutes’ drive from Paerata Rise and offers boutique shopping, cafes, an art gallery, medical services, cinema, a library, transport links to central Auckland and much more.  

Space to enjoy 

Paerata Rise will have both large-scale community and smaller pocket parks. There will be access to a wide range of recreation amenities already in the area including a golf course, tennis courts, rugby fields, indoor sports facilities and more.   

Clarks Beach is a short drive away, plus walking and mountain biking facilities of the Awhitu Regional Park are also easily accessible from Paerata Rise.  

A long-term vision 

Grafton Downs Ltd and Wesley College have a rich heritage of social enterprise and philanthropy that will continue long into the future.  

The Paerata Rise Residents Association will work to ensure community governance. Operating with a system of sound and fair custodial management, our emphasis is to create a community that every member feels invested in, and is proud to live in.
