East Tamaki is all about doing business. In fact that’s its motto: “East Tamaki – a Great Place To Do Business” courtesy of GETBA, the Greater East Tamaki Business Association Inc, one of Auckland’s most active business associations.  The addition of Highbrook and its state of the art commercial buildings has added a modern, architectural aspect to the area and continues to attract large corporates to locate their head offices here.

Introducing East Tamaki

East Tamaki is a manufacturing and distribution hub of some 2000 businesses strategically located close to the motorway, airport and port, pumping $3 billion into the New Zealand economy each year.  The East Tamaki business precinct is a a mixture of manufacturing, related services and retail/wholesale outlets. Vehicle servicing and sales yards feature prominently while it is also home to some major and familiar franchises. Commercial activity at the Greenmount Landfill came to an end recently. The 52-hectare site will in time become a public park for the enjoyment of all – a large green space bordering with an industrial precinct on one side, andresidential housing on the other. .

It has higher growth rates than the Auckland region average, experiencing 61% growth between 2000 and 2010. Eventually it will provide some 45,000 jobs.

Highbrook Business Park is rejuvenating this part of East Auckland with its development of the meticulously planned 107 hectare home to industrial, commercial and retail businesses. It is situated on the eastern side of State Highway 1 on the Waiouru Peninsula, mid-way between the Princes Street and East Tamaki motorway on/off ramps.

Highbrook is home to over 80 businesses employing more than 5,000 people. Over 30,000 commuters travel on Highbrook Drive each work day. Highbrook Crossing serves as a focal point for Highbrook’s growing community, with a mix of cafes, childcare, gym, and conference centres.

The development is notable for its trend-setting design and, as a result, has received numerous awards and Green Star ratings.

East Tamaki has a good walking route along the 9km Highbrook Path which borders the Tamaki River, which joins the 5km Highbrook South Path - popular with workers employed at nearby businesses.
