The area has been home to the marine and fishing industries for decades. Now, high-tech businesses are joining the neighbourhood..
Panuku has partnered with Precinct Properties to develop 48,000m² of commercial space in the centre of Wynyard Quarter.
Precinct Properties are working with some of New Zealand’s best architects to design a hub that enables businesses to excel and collaborate. One of the most exciting elements of the commercial development is GridAKL – the innovation precinct at Wynyard Quarter. It’s a home for ambitious companies, purpose-built to connect technologists, designers, digital content makers, product designers, and startups.
The first space for GridAKL is the Lysaght building, a beautiful art deco building being upgraded to not only meet the needs of fast paced innovative businesses but also to receive 5-Star Green Star Certified rating.
From there, GridAKL, in conjunction with ATEED (Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development) will work with Precinct Properties on other spaces within Wynyard Quarter.
Construction of the the first two building commenced in 2015.
