Project Details

  • Project Name: The Orchard
  • Client: Felton Developments Ltd
  • Location: Ohauiti, Tauranga
  • Building Size: 50 lots plus open space
  • Services Provided: Development Management


The Orchard is a 50 lot new residential community in Tauranga’s rural hinterland. Initially presented as a kiwifruit orchard in a prime urban location, Veros has undertaken full development of the land to create 50 new residential lots. This subdivision has an almost rural feel to it yet is only twelve minutes from the CBD, located in Ohauiti  – Ruba Way (off Mcfetridge Lane). The site offers views of the harbour and Kaimai ranges

The work of our Development Management team included:

  • Development of a business case and due dilligence
  • Presale – securing the commitment of group builders
  • Design Management – the development of controls and design covenants
  • Consent – overseeing Resource consents, Subdivision Consent, Land Use Consents, Earthworks Consents, and Discharge Consents
  • Civil construction – managing the construction across the stages


Navigating a range of issues including transport upgrades, and infrastructure partnerships, our Development Management team have delivered The Orchard from concept to completion.

The project provides new housing stock at an affordable level in a tight Tauranga market, as well as providing more premium reserve fronting land with outlook. The project has been successfully delivered in conjunction with strong partnerships with Group Builders, a strong marketing campaign, and a de-risked staging strategy.

Quality homes are now currently under construction.

Stage 1 sections range from 628m2 to 742m2.

Stage 2 sites range from 718m2 to 802m2
