Pokeno - An established strategic location

Now a well established employment zone within Pokeno, Gateway Business Park is strategically positioned at the crossroads of State Highways 1 & 2. This offers easy access to ports in Auckland and Tauranga, just 30 minutes from Auckland International Airport, and 40 minutes from Hamilton.

Businesses range in size from international heavyweights such as Yashili and Synlait Milk, essenntial infrastructure, homewares, plus an assortment of specialists in the food and beverage sector.

Permissive zoning

For those looking to lease within Gateway, the Business Park is zoned for Industrial 2 and Light Industrial use, offering industrial users greater flexibility with a wider range of permitted activities and more flexible planning controls, such as 24hr operations with noise levels up to 70 dBA Leq.

Local council support

Waikato District Council are pro-actively trying to attract industrial users into their district. This assists in the implementation of industrial facilities in Gateway Business Park.

The wider Pokeno project

Now a thriving village community, Pokeno Village Estate is part of the Pokeno Plan Change that includes over 2000 residential sections to the north, a revitalised town centre, a centralised sports park and 80 hectares of industrial land. Demand for the residential lots is very high, and many within the local community are now working within Gateway Business Park.

The vision for Pokeno is for an urban village to thrive within a rural backdrop, offering a mix of residential, employment and recreational opportunities. Businesses have the benefit of a town that is growing alongside their needs, where employees can live and work in Pokeno. With Pukekohe, the wider south Auckland area and north Waikato just minutes away, a larger residential workforce is close at hand.
