Queens Wharf competition launched
The Auckland City and Auckland Regional councils have jointly announced the next stage in the multi-million dollar re-development of Queens Wharf on Auckland’s waterfront.
A design and ideas competition has been launched, which will help shape how the new facilities may look for the 2011 Rugby World Cup and future use as a cruise terminal. Designs must adhere to a $76 million cap. So far the Auckland City Council has committed $54 million, leaving a $22 million shortfall.
A shortlist of designs will be announced at the end of September.
