Wynyard Point

Wynyard Point - Wynyard Quarter

At the northern point of Wynyard Quarter, where the land meets the sea, is an area that will arguably be one of the most important regeneration projects in the city over the next 10-20 years.

Once known to Aucklanders as the ‘tank’ farm due to its history as an oil storage depot, the area covers 4.5 hectares on the northern end of Wynyard Quarter. Developing this area relies on the expiry of existing leases, redevelopment of the seawall, strengthening of the wharf and remediating the land.

This area holds huge potential for a large urban park and planning is underway to make this happen. Before any development takes place, we’ll work closely with Aucklanders to consult and ensure the development reflects public aspirations.
