Preparing for the 36th America's Cup

Preparing for the 36th America's Cup - Wynyard Quarter

Much like the Rugby World Cup, the victory at the 2017 America’s Cup in Bermuda meant that New Zealand would be hosting the 36th America’s Cup Event in Auckland. Together with Wynyard Edge Alliance, Panuku worked hard to lay down the infrastructure for the bases, wharves and breakwaters required for the occasion, whilst creating a waterfront destination that lasts well beyond a single sporting event. The new infrastructure supports the marine industry well into the future as well as the introduction of new public space on Wynyard Wharf.
