Auckland CBD Streetscapes
The strategic objective for the project was to transform the Auckland CBD streetscapes to a level of environmental quality befitting a world class city.
The project encompasses three key sites within Auckland’s CBD; Queen Street, Quay Street and the Lorne Street Cultural Precinct.
The key objectives of the brief were to create a high quality urban environment, promote pedestrian amenity, express Auckland’s sense of place, and create a benchmark for future urban design projects.
Design consultants were engaged from varying disciplines (urban design, landscaping, lighting, civil and traffic engineering) contributing their area of expertise to the development of the projects.
All three projects involved an extensive consultation process with client, iwi, and key stakeholder groups to ensure the projects addressed their specific needs and concerns.
