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 and Waterfront Auckland, the council organisation charged with developing the waterfront , 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 .
