Transformational moves: Our eight big ideas for change
These eight transformational moves will unlock the potential of the city centre and help to meet the outcomes of the City Centre Masterplan.
Transformational move 1: Māori outcomes
This transformational move anticipates a range of interventions and systemic changes to bring mana whenua presence, Māori identity and life into the city centre and waterfront.
Transformational move 2: The east and west stitch
Land at both the east and west edges of the city centre is under-used and under-valued, and cut off by major roads. This move proposes to stitch the city centre together.
Transformational move 3: Waihorotiu / Queen Street Valley
This move proposes to make the area more accessible, more attractive and more prosperous, with better connections to the rest of the city centre.
Transformational move 4: The Learning Quarter
This move will integrate Auckland’s city centre universities into city centre life.
Transformational move 5: Transit oriented development
This move will shape planning and development in the best connected areas of Auckland, maximising the benefits of investment in public transport.
Transformational move 6: The Green Link
We want to unite some of our most important and historic parks and open spaces through a network of tree-lined linear park spaces along the Victoria Street corridor.
Transformational move 7: City to the villages
Transformational move 7 improves connections between the city centre and the city fringe.
Transformational move 8: Harbour edge stitch
This move provides a consistent vision for the continued development of Auckland's city centre waterfront.
