85-89 Quay Street, Queens Wharf and water space of the Waitemata Harbour adjacent to the western side of Queens Wharf26285-89 Quay Street, Queens Wharf and water space of the Waitemata Harbour adjacent to the western side of Queens WharfAuckland Transport has applied for resource consent to construct, operate and maintain six new ferry berths on the western side of Queens Wharf within the Downtown Ferry Basin (Piers A-F), undertake modifications to the existing ferry terminal buildings (located at existing Pier 1 and Pier 2) and historic shelter, and remove existing Piers 3 and 4. The construction, establishment, operation and maintenance of Piers A-F will require the installation of a concrete piled breakwater located immediately adjacent to the west of Queens Wharf, the installation of reverse saw-tooth shaped pontoons, three gangways, three fixed shelter structures, piles, pile guard markers and fenders. Street furniture will be installed along Queens Wharf to demarcate pedestrian-only and vehicle zones between the western edge of Queens Wharf and the Cloud. Modifications to the existing ferry terminal building at Pier 1 include the removal of the East Annexe Building, construction of new façades, removal of the ticket gates, replacement of the upper louvres, and the construction of new retail/food and beverage facilities within the existing terminal building. Modifications to the historic shelter include modification of the northern face and the insertion of skylights in the roof. Modifications to the open spaces to the east and south of the building are also proposed. Modifications to the terminal building at Pier 2 include relocating ancillary office space and repositioning passenger waiting space. Demolition of existing Piers 3 and 4 will involve the removal of gangways, pontoons and piles. The timing of the demolition is dependent on the new berths being fully operational and whether additional layover/decant space may be required for future Stage 2 works. Overall the proposal is a discretionary activity.
