See the city different
Wynyard Wharf, known to Aucklanders as the “tank farm” is owned by Waterfront Auckland on behalf of all Aucklanders and will be arguably the most important public space revitalisation projects in the city over the next 20 years.
The development of this area is contingent on the expiry of existing leases, most of which expire between 2016 and 2026.
Panuku Development Auckland’s role is to ensure the land is developed for Aucklanders in a co-ordinated way with the whole waterfront.
Significant investigation and planning for the site has already been undertaken with public input over many years. As the leases on the bulk liquid storage tanks get close to expiry (the last lease ending in 2026) Panuku Development Auckland is beginning a process to bring together local knowledge of the geographical context of the site, and the needs and desires of Aucklanders to define a development and revitalisation plan for the area.
The vision is for Wynyard Point to be a large public space including parkland, plazas and a signature public building. It will be a significant, new sustainable urban environment with a mix of residential, commercial and cultural uses that will model what we intend to be world-leading sustainable technologies and behaviours.
The approach to the development of area, the including a proposed signature building, will be done in close discussion with the public to ensure that it reflects our aspirations as a city and a nation and creates a sense of ownership of this new public space.
