The transforming city

Auckland’s city centre is in a period of rapid transformational change, with substantial investment committed to the area by both the public sector and private developers.

Major development continues on the City Rail Link, along with residential and commercial developments across the city centre. The Downtown Programme of 6 key projects along Quay Street will soon conclude after three years of works.

A number of recently completed highlight projects are now attracting visitors, including Commercial Bay, The Pacifica and Te Komititanga.

When the City Rail Link starts operating in 2024, it will transform access to the city centre, carrying an estimated 54,000 peak-time passengers each hour and doubling the number of people within a 30-minute commute of the city centre. 

See Auckland Council's Progress AKL site for map and list views of all of the city centre's major public transformation projects and a number of private developments.
