Downtown Auckland’s transformation continues with new mixed-use precinct

A bold, world-class mixed-use precinct in the city centre is set to complete the revitalisation of downtown Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland. Eke Panuku Development Auckland and Precinct Properties have signed a development agreement for the redevelopment of the Downtown Car Park site, the last remaining under-used and strategically significant site in the area.

The precinct will include premium commercial, retail and hospitality offerings, drawing thousands of workers and visitors to the area every day. It will also include hundreds of new homes, growing the city centre’s stature as an urban neighbourhood that tens of thousands of Aucklanders already call home.

At ground level, the precinct will feature expansive public laneways and spacious internal courtyards, seamlessly connecting to Britomart (through Commercial Bay) and the Viaduct. This will complete the downtown laneway network as envisioned in the City Centre Masterplan, with more opportunities to connect with midtown in the future.

First off the ground: civil construction completed in Roskill South

Across dozens of neighbourhoods set to deliver tens-of-thousands of new homes, Roskill South is the first in a Kāinga Ora large-scale project to have all its civil construction completed.

Driving home through Roskill South now means travelling along 32,000 square metres of upgraded roads.

Nearly 150 new streetlights guide the way, framing those roads in place of power poles removed as electricity was fed underground – among 28 kilometres of new utility lines.

More than 5km of new mains connect homes with fresh water, and 4.5km of new wastewater pipes see to its safe removal. Rainfall is prevented from flooding nearby homes thanks to nearly 9km of new stormwater pipes and an upgraded Freeland Reserve, where you’ll find many of Roskill South’s almost 28,500 new plants and 370 additional trees.
