Project Objectives

This project is located at the edge of the city and harbour on contaminated land. The public space is designed as a catalyst for development. The objectives established were:

  • Create a unique destination and a truly civic waterfront promenade
  • Bring fun, family and recreational focus to the site;
  • Foster real engagement with authentic maritime experiences;
  • Enable this place to communicate its history; and
  • Achieve an environment that is well connected yet offers distinctly different experiences.

Three distinct places have been developed within the site, Jellicoe Street, North Wharf and Silo Park.

Key Features

  • Jellicoe Street has been narrowed, shifting the proposed building alignment and planting a lush Auckland centric streetscape in a high quality urban ground plane. This character is amplified at Jellicoe Plaza.
  • Silo park is an urban park with diverse activities that reflect maritime heritage. Water treatment of site storm-water is integrated in the project here.
  • North Wharf is retained in its original condition, still usable by the fishing fleet, but adapted for public use as well.
  • Integration of artwork into the public space through a dedicated arts strategy.

Sustainability

  • Reduced energy demand through use of efficient lighting technologies.
  • Water sensitive urban design implementation site-wide – capturing, treating and reusing storm-water.
  • Reuse of site won materials – e.g. concrete blocks from the Golden Bay Cement works site.
  • Creation of habitat for flora and fauna including aquatic life
  • Promotes healthy activity, environmental education and encourages positive social interaction

Innovation

  • Deonstrates the importance of public space by implementing landscape before building.
  • Demonstrates a coherent use of new and old materials and elements, and integrates site wide storm water treatment.
