Auckland City Centre Master Plan
Auckland Council seeks designers for redevelopment of Quay Street
Auckland Council is seeking proposals from designers to assist with the future redevelopment of Quay Street.
Quay Street has been earmarked for change under the City Centre Master Plan – a blueprint for the future use of the central city.
The council is issuing a request for expressions of interest from design consultants.
Concept designs for development of Quay Street will be considered by the Auckland Development Committee, and Aucklanders will have an opportunity to have their say before designs are finalised.
“We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a great waterfront and city centre, and we need the best designers working with us as we develop our proposals to transform this area,” Deputy Mayor and Auckland Development Committee Chair Penny Hulse said.
City Centre integration general manager Rick Walden, said the project was at a very early stage. “As options are developed we will be seeking input from the wider community.”
The council aims to complete the appointment of a design team in November.
Quay Street Auckland Master Plan
• A draft ‘Site and Context Analysis’ report was prepared in September 2012 with the purpose of developing a baseline understanding of Quay Street to inform the design process
• A ‘Design Framework’ was then completed for the Quay Street Project in June 2013
• This work included a draft concept design for Quay Street’s streetscape upgrade and aspirational conceptual proposals for the Ferry Basin, Admiralty Basin and Ferry Building promenade water’s edge areas
• The project has since progressed through a period of co-ordination and integration with other related Downtown projects and developments
• The request for expressions of interest document will be available on Tenderlink www.lgtenders.co.nz and GETS www.gets.govt.nz
