Catherine Smith: ready to take the lead with Kenyon Clarke

There are plenty of people who have lots to say about urban regeneration and developments featuring well-designed and affordable homes, in places that folks actually want to work.

Kenyon Clarke of Du Val Developments has done more than talk about it.

“We’ve been named by [real estate company] CRBE as Auckland’s second-largest suburban apartment developer,” he says.

“In the last five years we’ve built over 200 apartments around Middlemore, Papatoetoe and Mangere Bridge. Our Lakewood Plaza, near Manukau, is a $110 million development.”
