Wynyard Quarter Development Plans

Willis Bond & Co have have partnered with Waterfront Auckland to provide a mixed-use scheme for an area around Daldy Street in Auckland's Wynyard Quarter.

Plans are to include over 500 new homes - apartments, townhouses, duplexes, retail, and community facilities (such as healthcare, childcare and a community centre). A diverse landscape is provided with the use of a number of architects, laneways, thoroughfares and open public spaces - all of which sounds like an exciting new development.

Timber frames will withstand weathering from the nearby sea. A courtyard / planting buffer zone between buildings and the street.

Again, planting and small roads make for a pedestrian friendly city.
