  • Quay Street Enhancements


    A unique design collaboration with Mana Whenua brings fundamental change to one of Tāmaki Makaurau’s oldest and most important streets.

    Located in the rapidly growing downtown area, the Quay Street Enhancement (QSE) project will transform Quay Street from a busy arterial road into a distinctive people-focused place at the edge of Te Waitematā (Waitematā harbour).

    Hospitality, well-being and connection form the basis for a design that interweaves ecology, history and culture. Quay Street will become a place to move, rest and meet, with a strong focus on the needs of pedestrians and cyclists.

    Underpinning the QSE project is a collaborative design process between Mana Whenua, Auckland Council, Auckland Transport and a collection of local design firms.

    This collaborative design process strengthened and elevated design outcomes to deliver a project that expresses local identity, culture and history that reflects Tāmaki Makaurau and the downtown area.
