City Centre Waterfront
Downtown Auckland is now an expression of Tāmaki Makaurau
Hear how private and public investment are both key players in the development of our city centre
Responding to Aucklanders’ feedback, Auckland Council will deliver the last three stages of the Wai Horotiu Queen Street Project in one cohesive design.
On Friday 2 July the much-awaited Te Wānanga public space on the edge of a people-prioritised Quay Street will open for Aucklanders to experience, and on 5 July the six new ferry berths, named Te Ngau O Horotiu, located in the Ferry Basin will receive their first passengers.
A timeline for the next three stages of improvements to Queen Street, from Shortland Street to Mayoral Drive, was announced by Auckland Council and Auckland Transport today. The programme of improvements will be complete by the end of June 2022.
Divers have attached 38 seeded mussel lines to the underside of Te Wānanga, the new public space which reaches out over the water in Quay Street.
While the city was sleeping, Auckland’s urban ngahere/forest welcomed home the first two of seven mature pōhutukawa to Quay Street in a nine-hour crane operation.
