Political stability, benign state agencies and one of the safest countries in the world coupled with convenient access to two picturesque coastlines, two harbours, maritime winds to disperse what little smog accumulates, temperate sub-tropical climate, unspoilt native bush, wine trails, world class entertaining and dining facilities and a vibrant arts and culture scene - it is easy to see why people are flocking to ever-appealing Auckland.
Known for its cosmopolitan diversity, of the 1.3 million people who now live in Auckland more than a quarter were born overseas and the number continues to grow apace with the majority originating from Asia. As newcomers arrive they import, enhance and invigorate city life with the exciting and refreshing nuances of exotic language, cuisine, attire, expectation, ambition and opportunity.
While Wellington may be the cultural and political capital of the country, Auckland is indisputably the nation’s economic capital. As New Zealand’s pre-eminent commercial centre, most international andmulti-national companies maintain a presence in Auckland with most accommodated in the CBD in and around lower Queen St – only a walk of several minutes from your apartment at The Airedale.
