Regenerating Wynyard Quarter

Regenerating Wynyard Quarter - Wynyard Quarter

Whether it’s strolling the Waitematā shore with an ice cream, experiencing city-sea living in a new apartment or embracing innovation in a harbourside hub, Wynyard Quarter is driving Auckland’s dreams for its waterfront.

The first stage in 2011 sparked life into 500 metres of public space on the water’s edge – and Aucklanders haven’t looked back since.

Auckland’s newest waterfront neighbourhood is going through one of the largest urban regenerations in New Zealand. It’s evolving from an industrial port once closed to the public, to a treasured place where people can live, visit, relax, be entertained and do business.

This regeneration will continue for 20 more years. When we’re done, Wynyard Quarter will be home to about 3000 residents and 25,000 workers.

The vision is for a mix of homes, shops and office development to enable the growth of a strong, diverse, inclusive and lively residential and business community all while retaining the fishing and marine industries.

Panuku is leading the regeneration on behalf of Auckland Council and working with private sector partners to deliver this vision through the continued commercial and residential development. As the major landowner, we’re ensuring Wynyard Quarter is developed in an environmentally sustainable way high expectations set with or development partners. We’re also creating high-quality public spaces designed with people and play at the heart.

With its variety of restaurants and cafes, and an enticing calendar of events, Wynyard Quarter has quickly established itself as a popular destination for locals and visitors alike.

It has played host to many a major sporting event such as the Rugby World Cup, Volvo Ocean Race and 36th America’s Cup since 2011, and continues to evolve as an entertainment hub for all ages and interests.
