A 2km long 'shared use' water's edge promenade and associated public open spaces, integrated within a complex and dynamic working waterfront context. The project provides a continuous 'shared path' along the Westhaven foreshore between Wynyard Quarter and the Auckland Harbour Bridge including new waters edge open spaces, marina infrastructure and new coastal structures such as piers, observation platforms, lookouts and the ecological enhancement of the coastal margin zone.


The project has successfully merged with the existing working marina, land-based activities and enhanced public access to a previously inaccessible water's edge. The promenade incorporates generous timber decking, bespoke seating and lighting. LandLAB has also worked with Waterfront Auckland's marina team to develop designs for new marina infrastructure including pier entrances, signage and the re-use of pontoons and platforms for public access.
