About us

A not-for-profit organisation representing New Zealand's Commercial, Industrial, Retail, Property Funds and Multi Unit Residential property owners, managers and investors, Property Council covers all forms of commercial property and property investment in New Zealand.

Property Council New Zealand began life in 1976 as the Building Owners and Managers Association, (BOMA), helping to forge a new industry with a clear identity, purpose and increasing political influence.  In April 1999, BOMA was re-launched as Property Council New Zealand and it now has a wider focus and a higher political profile, providing more benefits to members.

Branch Executive Committees govern our branch offices in Auckland, Bay of Plenty, Waikato, Wellington and the South Island, while national committees focus on strategic issues including taxation, planning and development controls, research and information, corporate real estate and retail issues.
