Takapuna Central site

Takapuna Central site - Takapuna

The one-hectare Takapuna Central site consists of the 40 Anzac Street carpark and several Hurstmere road properties and it is pivotal to the vision for Takapuna.

Its new mix of shops, office, public open spaces 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
  • Alternative short-stay parking.

On 6 March 2018 Auckland Council’s Planning Committee gave the green light to change its use and for a new 420-space parking building to replace it to be built at the Gasometer site at 14 Huron Street.
