Our Story

Whanake’s objective is to develop well designed, quality, liveable homes for Aucklanders.

We have purposefully chosen Whanake as our name which in Maori means to grow, or to develop, and a stylised Koru as our logo which represents growth.

Whanake is part of the Mayar Group, a global enterprise that employs more than 1,400 people in 18 countries around the world. Whanake’s sister company in New Zealand, Aubade NZ Limited, owns and manages more than 1,400 hectares of forest in New Zealand. It is one of the top largest exporters of New Zealand pine logs to India and a significant exporter of pine logs to China.
