The Waterfront Plan sets out the vision and goals for Auckland's city centre waterfront. It is an integrated action plan that contains a range of short, medium and long-term initiatives that will transform this part of the city.
The public response to the parts of the waterfront that have been revitalised: Wynyard Quarter and Queens Wharf, has been hugely positive. Panuku Development Auckland, the council organisation charged with developing the waterfront and other parts of Auckland, is committed to sustaining the momentum of positive change.
Some of the proposed projects are:
- a 10km promenade and cycleway along the edge of the waterfront from Harbour Bridge to TEAL Park
- an innovation precinct at Wynyard Quarter that will attract global ITC, marine and other technology- focused organizations to do business here in Auckland
- a linear park through the Wynyard Quarter on Daldy Street that will link Victoria Park to the future headland park on Wynyard Point
- a new cruise terminal in Shed 10 on Queens Wharf where some 200,000 visitors will be welcomed to Auckland each year
- the protection of our maritime history with a classic boat marina and berths for the heritage ferry 'Kestrel' and the 76 year old tug 'William C Daldy' where people can visit and learn
- a 4.5 hectare park on Wynyard Point
- a light rail system linking the Wynyard Quarter to the city .
