Heart of the City Submission on the Queen Street Waihorotiu Valley Project
Heart of the City provided feedback to Auckland Council on their updated plans for the Waihorotiu Queen Street project in October 2021.
In summary, Heart of the City (HOTC) wants to see a beautiful and well-functioning Queen Street – one that is inclusive supports business and encourages people to come here.
Queen Street plays an important economic, civic, cultural and social role. Pre-COVID, Queen Street generated more than half a billion dollars of retail sales per annum. Economic recovery requires not only an attractive environment but also one that functions well to ensure that both Queen Street and the wider city centre is inviting and accessible.
We have provided feedback to the specific elements that Auckland Council is asking for feedback on.
