Wynyard Quarter, Auckland Overview

To the western end of the Auckland waterfront in New Zealand is the Wynyard Quarter, a reformed property which has been undergoing a transformation project since 2011. It was opened in time for the Rugby World Cup in 2011 and has since been redeveloping into a modern space with plazas, restaurants, theatre and sports ground along with other lineups in construction. In summer, the Silo Park becomes the hub here with weekend markets and movie shows.

Opened in 2011 for the Rugby World Cup, the Wynyard Quarter in Auckland, New Zealand is a reclaimed land which is now developing space for commercial and residential use. It has been part of a large scale redevelopment project in New Zealand with areas like restaurants, parks, plazas and other commercial institutions planned out and is connected to the port, Viaduct Harbour by a bascule bridge. Bordered by the Waitematā Harbour on its western end, the architecture and design of the Wynyard Quarter has garnered many awards and critical acclaim.

An interesting feature of Wynyard Quarter is that there are only three roads and a cycling and pedestrian bridge here to both entry as well exit this space. This measure was in an effort to encourage the population to make use of their cycles and public transport or walk to their destinations.
