40 Anzac Street

40 Anzac Street - Takapuna

Located in the centre of Takapuna next to Potters Park, 40 Anzac Street is well-placed to provide a new public space and more direct connections between the town centre and Takapuna Beach.

Its new mix of shops, offices, public space and homes will unify the heart of Takapuna. People will also enjoy using lively, interesting laneways to get to Hurstmere Road, Hurstmere Green and Takapuna Beach.

We’re working with Takapuna communities on how they’d prefer to use the public spaces on the Anzac Street site. We’re proposing:

  • People-friendly spaces, including a new town square, to enable activities like a market
  • Well-designed laneways creating connections between Anzac Street, Lake Road and Hurstmere Road
  • Safer access to Potters Park

On 6 March 2018 Auckland Council’s Planning Committee gave the green light to a “change of use,” meaning the site could be used for purposes other than car parking. Alternative short-stay car parking would be available at a new 420-space parking building on the Gasometer site at 14 Huron Street.
