The vision for Panmure is to create a vibrant town centre that is a great place to live, visit and do business; building on its distinct landscape, transport connectivity, local services and amenities and sense of community.
Located within the Tāmaki Transformation area, Panmure town centre is well-located with excellent public transport links to the wider Auckland area.
Panmure was chosen as a location for regeneration due to large areas of underused, council-owned land in the town centre that represent significant redevelopment opportunities.
The project area covers 43ha and encompasses land owned by council, TRC, the Crown and Auckland Transport (AT), who Panuku will work in partnership with to facilitate the staged transition of sites for development.
Panuku will also work closely with Tāmaki Regeneration Company (TRC), who through its Regeneration Programme will build 7500 new homes across Tāmaki in the next 15-20 years. Discover more about the Tāmaki project here.
Enlivening the mainstreet is a key part of the future plan for Panmure. Panuku will work closely with the business community and look to introduce fresh retail and commercial space into Panmure to strengthen the appeal of the town centre and the diversity of what's on offer.
A number of sites for mixed-use development will increase the number of homes and further expand the range of services the community can access.
A multi-purpose community facility with a civic space is envisaged at the heart of the town centre where the community could come together and access key facilities such as a library and a community centre.
The High Level Project Plan (HLPP) plan for Panmure town centre outlines the context for the project, the key decisions and main phases required to complete it over the next 15-20 years, during which time the population is expected to grow significantly.
The plan was informed by public feedback gathered from a series of community sessions held in October last year and an online survey. People who visit, live and work in Panmure were asked to share their thoughts on safety, community facilities and transport connections to and from the town centre, including walking and cycling.
The sessions were supported by representatives from Panuku, members of the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board and representatives from TRC.
