Waterview is located about eight kilometres southwest of the city centre. It is a popular suburb undergoing rapid transformation as the new Waterview Connection road project soon to complete will join the SH16 and SH20 transport corridors with the SH1 and beyond.
The area has a large range of homes, some command views of the nearby coast. There is a variety of amenities, including parks, local shops and restaurants as well as close proximity to nearby Unitec. St Lukes Shopping centre is closeby and there is also easy access to the centre in New Lynn. The CBD is easily accessible by road and frequent public transport links.
There are many options for leisure activities in and around the nearby Te-Atatu Peninsula, Waitakere Ranges and West Coast Beaches.
