See the city different
A place to live, work and visit. Again and again.
Wynyard Quarter is becoming one of New Zealand’s most exciting and diverse places. Bordered on three sides by the sparkling Waitemata Harbour, the 37 hectare area has been home to the hard-working marine and fishing industries for decades. Recently, alongside the ongoing marine activity, some exciting developments have taken place.
This once industrial and port area, closed off to public access for many years, is now being opened up. The first stage of the Wynyard Quarter revitalization centred around Jellicoe Street opened in 2011 - and Aucklanders haven’t looked back since. With a variety of restaurants, cafes and a healthy calendar of events, this area quickly established itself as a popular destination for both locals and visitors. Since then a wave of additional commercial development has taken off on the southern edge of the precinct, bordering Fanshawe Street.
The next few years promise to be just as exciting, as a range of apartments and townhouses are built for future residents and new high-tech offices begin attracting workers in the centre of Wynyard Quarter. This includes a 600 seat theatre and a five-star hotel joining the neighbourhood and new parks and walkways will open up for visitors and local’s to enjoy. Just as the disused railway tracks outside North Wharf are a clue to the past, the new mix of buildings and public spaces are the beginnings of an exciting, new Wynyard Quarter.
