Masterplanning is underway on the Bayswater Marina residential development on Auckland’s North Shore.
Just 17 per cent of the 3.4ha waterfront site, which has beautiful views south and west across the Waitemata harbour to the city and Harbour Bridge, will be built on. Approximately 2.4ha of the site, including the existing marina, hardstands, public boat ramp and ferry terminal, is designated for public space.
The medium-intensity development of approximately 120 dwellings will primarily be town house-type houses and include a few apartments. Heights will be capped at 12 metres.
The marina will retain its present functionality and car parking. New public space will likely include cafés, retail outlets, parks, children’s playgrounds, a waterfront boardwalk and a new beach. It offers a sought-after lifestyle and an attractive public area by the water.
“Bayswater Marina is a perfect example of the development potential presented by a site close to public transport nodes, and the role they can play in helping Auckland to realise its vision of becoming the world’s most liveable city,” says Construkt principal Madushin Amarasekera. “We are excited to be involved with such a pivotal Auckland project.”
“With its masterplanning and urban development expertise, Construkt is well placed to help us realise our vision for this project,” says Marina owner Simon Herbert. “The team has developed some outstanding concepts already.”
