North Wharf site in Wynyard Quarter to go to market

The headland in the north of Wynyard Quarter will be developed into a park, and other areas in Wynyard Quarter will be developed to accommodate the growing needs of the community by introducing more housing, offices and public amenities.

One site to deliver on this vision is North Wharf, which is currently a hub for hospitality that overlooks Jellicoe Harbour. This site popped up in Wynyard Quarter back in 2011 ahead of the Rugby World Cup. It was designed as a temporary build (10 – 15 years lifespan) that could provide income, while it retained the full development potential of the site for a future date.

Now over a decade on, in alignment with the long-term plan for the site and the current leases expiring, North Wharf is being taken to market by Eke Panuku with the goal of selling it (125-year prepaid ground lease) to a development partner, who will unlock the potential of a permanent and sustainable building for the site.


New public homes within Whangārei subdivision

Te Tai Tokerau Regional Director Jeff Murray says as well increasing the number of new, modern homes available for whānau, it will also enable nearby Kāinga Ora properties to be freed up for development.

Te Awa shared path completed

Minister of Transport Michael Wood joined crowds of keen cyclists and walkers this morning to celebrate the completion of the Te Awa shared path in Hamilton.

“The Government is upgrading New Zealand’s transport system to make it safer, greener, and more efficient for now and future generations to come,” Michael Wood said.

“By giving people more transport choices like the Te Awa path, we can reduce transport emissions, reduce congestion on our roads, and build healthier, better connected communities.

“The Te Awa path runs through the heart of the Waikato, linking Hamilton with Ngaruawahia to the north with Karapiro to the south, connecting many communities in between.
