Auckland’s new Ferry Basin revealed

A vision of an accessible waterfront neighbourhood that prioritises people is driving efforts to transform downtown Auckland. In just three years Auckland’s waterfront will look dramatically different. The Downtown Programme will create a generous and welcoming destination along the water’s edge that better connects people to the Waitematā Harbour and turns the Quay Street area into a more vibrant destination.

Working closely with Council, Auckland Transport and other stakeholders, Isthmus are designing a new water’s edge public space, as well as a ferry terminal with six new berths. Combined with the enhancement of Quay Street (by LandLAB) this exciting new waterfront destination will accommodate growing numbers of people in the city centre who need more space to move, rest and play.

“The design of the dramatic changes afoot will reflect our unique Auckland identity and celebrate our place in the world,” says Councillor Chris Darby.
