About

Countrywide Residences may be a new name on the development scene, but the well-known identities behind it have a wealth of experience in residential and commercial projects.

Their vision is to bring a more considered version of today’s urban lifestyle to well-established areas of Auckland that are under-served with quality urban density. Their latest project Outlook Mission Bay shows all the hallmarks of a well-conceived and well-executed project that will make significant contribution to the suburb in which it is located.

Countrywide Residences are constantly assessing sites where similar upscale developments will be welcomed by those transitioning to apartment living.
