Ltd – is a significant landowner at Marsden Point and Business Development Manager Vibeke Wright says it’s attracting a lot of attention from manufacturers and exporters who are waking up to the benefits of doing business there. “For starters, there’s established business and industrial zones ready for development at affordable rates you won’t find in Auckland. One of our tenants, formerly based in Silverdale, is paying 50% less on his lease costs and has the room he needs to grow. There’s a wide range of housing options too – a prime consideration for employers who see their staff struggling to afford accommodation in the city. And last but by no means least, the Greater Marsden Point Area delivers on lifestyle with beaches, recreation, and fantastic scenery.” Northport Ltd CEO Jon Moore notes, “Auckland has a growing population that needs imported goods, but operators are getting frustrated with distribution constraints in the city. Northport definitely has a role to play to ease the burden and assist in efficient delivery of products to that market.”
MMH has invested heavily in the area with private roads providing access to the port (complementing the State Highway network between Whangarei, Marsden Point and Auckland), constructed premises for tenants, and built a boat haul-out service and hardstand facility at the Marsden Cove Marina, located within the premier residential “marine village” created by Hopper Developments. The hardstand in particular is attracting the attention of marine service providers, eager to tap in early to the emerging market.
