Pile Mooring Redevelopment (Stage 1) – We have released an Expression of Interest to the industry for the design and build of both the new reclamation and the new marina pontoons. With the marina at full capacity, the introduction of 120 new serviced berths is great news. With a couple of exceptions due to draft and size, most pile berth customers will be accommodated in the reconfigured remaining pile berth area. We will continue to keep customers and users of the marina informed as work programmed to start, particularly around the planning of the closure of the marina’s western entrance.

The Westhaven Promenade (Stage 2) – Advance work for the Westhaven Promenade Stage 2 are underway. This early work includes an upgrade of the electricity, water and data services for this part of the marina. Users of this area will notice activity between K Pier and R Pier, including the carpark. It will be done in 60m segments. Resource consent for the project was filed for this project in November and pending a successful outcome, full construction will commence later in summer.

The Westhaven Marine Village – The Westhaven Marine Village has strong tenant interest and resource consent. This iteration of the project is smaller than previous proposals, and will extend from just south of the marina office, to before the bathroom building by the Sales Pier. We will advise you when timeframes are confirmed. Associated with this we are starting to investigate a project to reconfigure J Pier as a pier where boats for sale can be berthed in public view.

Skypath enabling works – These maintenance and upgrade works are required to prepare Westhaven for the arrival of Skypath, the walking/cycling route across the Harbour Bridge. Starting within a month we will be, improving the cycleway connections on Curran St, installing CCTV, and upgrading water supply and sewage infrastructure, as well as lifting the seawall to the east of the Harbour Bridge by 600mm. We aim to complete this work in 2019. All of these works will significantly improve and upgrade the marina and its ability to be resilient and secure.

The St Marys Bay – Masefield Beach Water Quality Improvement Project – this is an important Auckland Council infrastructure project that will significantly improve water quality within Westhaven, in particular at St Marys Bay, which is a hub of recreational small craft boating in Auckland.
New project: Silo Marina Optimisation Project
A project to optimise the Super Yacht berths and services associated with the biggest berths In Auckland has been underway since before the start of the 2018 summer. The works took a break during the busier summer months and will recommence during May with the extension of two of the finger berths, and the addition of additional electrical capacity along with replacement parking and storage onsite.
