Wynyard Quarter is undergoing one of the largest urban regenerations in New Zealand, evolving from a publicly-restricted industrial port to a space where people can live, visit, be entertained, and do business.
The work focuses on establishing new connections between Wynyard Quarter, Victoria Park, and the city centre.
Working with Auckland Council, Panuku and Watercare, AT has transformed Daldy Street, Gaunt Street, Halsey Street, and Pakenham Street into pedestrian- and cyclist-friendly environments with high-quality street furniture, paving, and landscaping. Beaumont Street and Westhaven Drive are next up.
We are aiming to carry out public consultation on designs for Beaumont Street and Westhaven Drive in mid-late 2022 with a view to construction in 2024.
The objectives for the Wynyard Quarter project are defined by the Auckland Council District Plan – Plan change 4, the Urban Design Framework and the Sustainable Development Framework.
The upgrades will support several of Auckland Council’s strategic objectives for the city defined in the Auckland Plan, the City Centre Master Plan and the Waterfront Plan.
The Waterfront Plan proposed enhanced accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists. It sets an ambitious 70/30 modal split (ie 70% of peak trips are by passenger transport, walking and cycling, and only 30% by private vehicle).
