Waterfront Auckland’s residential development partner Willis Bond & Co reached the 50 percent sales milestone last week for the new apartments and townhouses planned for Wynyard Quarter.

Willis Bond & Co is offering two distinct developments within Wynyard Quarter. Wynyard Central sits in the heart of the precinct overlooking Daldy Street Park.132 Halsey is a premium offering right on the edge of the Viaduct Harbour. Both sites are over 50 percent sold and the milestone was reached within just three months of sales.

The milestone enables Willis Bond & Co to advance building consents and finalise construction timelines. Construction of Wynyard Central is expected to start in October and 132 Halsey is expected to begin shortly after. The first homes are due to be completed by mid-2017.

Waterfront Auckland Development Director Daniel Khong is delighted about how sales are tracking and it illustrates the popularity of the area as a whole.

“Having 50 percent of the first tranche of residential sell this quickly is great news and just shows how much people appreciate all the changes to Wynyard Quarter to date and what’s planned here for the future.”

“Living in Wynyard Quarter will be all about being part of a new vibrant community with a focus on sustainable living.  We are excited about how many Aucklanders are really getting behind that vision.”

The ongoing revitalisation of Wynyard Quarter is expected to enter a new phase from late 2015 as extensive construction activity begins on the residential, commercial and hotel sites.

Willis Bond & Co.’s residential development is an 8-10 year project in partnership with Waterfront Auckland. In total, between 500 - 600 apartments and townhouses, housing around 1100 people, will be developed by Willis Bond & Co right in the heart of Wynyard Quarter.
