Wynyard Quarter is a massive business, hotel and residential development on the old “Tank farm”, between Victoria Park and the harbour, with connection to the CBD. Within 10 years Wynyard Quarter is expected to accommodate 11,000 workers and 2000 residents. Thirteen major buildings are expected to be completed by 2018. The Auckland Theatre Company’s 600-seat theatre opened in October 2016.
Parking will be extremely limited in Wynyard Quarter and public transport connections inadequate. St Mary’s Bay is approximately a 10-minute walk to and from this area, so it is likely that visitors will seek to park in St Mary’s Bay.
The whole project is being co-ordinated by Panuku Development Auckland (a merger of Waterfront Auckland and the Auckland Council’s property development arm).
