Airfields Precinct

Airfields Quarters occupy the last significant parcel of land in Hobsonville Point set aside for residential development. At the northern end of the peninsula, within a stone’s throw of the sea, Airfields Quarters offer a highly desirable location with easy access to Catalina Bay, Onekiritia Park (formerly Bomb Point), local schools and other amenities, not to mention transport links.

Hobsonville Point, spreading its wings

Hobsonville Point is buzzing. The northernmost precincts are now under construction, bringing waterfront living to the suburb.

The coastal walkway is now complete, a wonderful way to enjoy the beautiful natural setting of Hobsonville Point. Ferries now bring visitors in large numbers as well as taking commuters to and from the CBD.

More than amenities, the sense of community has really grown, with more than 6,000 people now making their home in Hobsonville Point.

The Airfields story

In 1924 Hobsonville was chosen by the government as a site for both land and sea-based aviation. The RNZAF established its home on Hobsonville point in 1929.

Catalina Bay was constructed as a ‘wet apron’ where flying boats could roll up onto the land, while the level farmland nearby was chosen for conventional aircraft. The base became dotted with barracks, houses and hangars, intersected by roads and grass landing strips.

Airfields Quarters sit on these very landing strips. They were used primarily by military aircraft whole names are celebrated in the street names of Hobsonville Point – de Havilland, Harvard, Meteor – and the names we have given to our different types of dwellings.

Austers were post-war British three seaters developed for commercial as well as military operation. Long-lived, one of them was still being operated at Ardmore in the 1990s. It’s also the name given to our 1 & 2 bedroom apartments.
