PROMENADE STAGE 2
The Promenade Stage 2 project has reached completion! To celebrate Panuku Development Auckland (Eke Panuku) hosted a ceremony with iwi and construction partners on Monday 16 November to bless both stage two of the Westhaven Promenade and the Marine Village.
Stage two of the promenade now offers a continuous shared path along Westhaven’s foreshore between Wynyard Quarter and the Auckland Harbour Bridge. It is a long-awaited connection between the existing and well-loved stage one promenade sections which were completed in 2015.
Designed by LandLAB and built by HEB Construction, the Westhaven Promenade is designed for slow-moving traffic on foot, or those on bikes or scooters travelling at a slow pace. Berth holders will utilise the boardwalk to get to their berths via the pier gates that feature artwork by Graham Tipene of Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei.
Thank you to all berth holders who have been affected by these works, we really appreciate all your patience over this time.
