Tim Manning: Principle

Tim Manning’s vision and energy is the driving force behind the success of Norwich Properties Ltd.

Tim was born in Napier, a small seaside town on the North Island’s east coast, in February 1959. He completed his education with a Bachelor of Technology at Massey University.

Tim has been involved with more than 50 projects and has been responsible for some of New Zealand’s largest residential developments over the past 25 years. His companies have been involved in excess of over 2000 homes and over 2 billion dollars of residential property in New Zealand.

Tim is particularly skilled at locating potential development sites, incorporating innovative design, coordinating project funding and then following through with a strong sales, construction and settlement process.

Tim was the first to successfully create large gated-communities in New Zealand, and in the early 1990’s Tim was also one of the first to refurbish Auckland CBD commercial buildings into apartments, helping to bring life back to the downtown Auckland area.

He creatively developed apartments in Ponsonby; a traditional suburban area close to the city, which has become the hub of Auckland’s café society. Tim also had the vision in the mid 1990’s to develop apartments in Albany, miles from the city, which has now become a large city in its own right. Tim has been an innovator in the inclusion of many on-site facilities within development complexes, such as: on-site management, gymnasium, pool facilities and tennis courts, and fully integrated security – now all standard for many developments.

Over the past two decades Tim Manning and his group of companies has reinforced its position as one of Auckland’s most experienced and innovative developers of quality property.
