Your new home in Wynyard Quarter

City living at its finest

Situated in the heart of Wynyard Quarter, is Wynyard Central, an intimate community offering a unique waterfront lifestyle in the city’s most exciting new area. The location is connected like nowhere else; to the waterfront, downtown and the best city-fringe locations.

Designed to exacting standards by award-winning architectural practice Architectus, the first stage of Wynyard Central has contemporary presence while echoing the surrounding marine environment and maritime heritage.

Wynyard Quarter will have at its heart an urban, waterfront village with a sustainability and design ambition that has not been seen in New Zealand before. The buildings are designed to introduce sun and light and are constructed from a variety of enduring natural materials.

Every detail has a high quality of finish and spaces are stylish, generous and unashamedly contemporary, offering an exceptional level of comfort, convenience and luxury. Each home is individually designed to suit a wide range of lifestyles and preferences.

With a home here you’ll enjoy restaurants and cafés just a stroll away, easy access to Auckland’s marine playground and an unhurried enjoyment of everything Wynyard Quarter has to offer. There’s water all around, sunlight, fresh sea air, and open spaces to savour.

This is a unique place to live, offering a way of life where you can enjoy all that Auckland has to offer.


A new level of residential living

The buildings are boldly contemporary, with architectural influences designed to offer a diversity of form, an appealing streetscape and a real choice of residences to suit different lifestyles.

This intimate community is conceived in three different typologies including pavilions; townhouses; and a state-of-the-art 
apartment building.

Each residence is individually designed with carefully considered proportions and oriented to ensure it introduces sun and light and maximises views.

The buildings of Wynyard Central are built from a variety of the finest natural materials and are a response to their surroundings, particularly the green space of Daldy Street Park and the personality of the neighbouring Southern Spars character building.

The landscaping surrounding the neighbourhood is exceptional and each residence is accessed from an intimate lane. Thoroughfares and laneways connect the buildings not only to their immediate neighbourhood, but also to public parks and spaces of the wider Wynyard Quarter and waterfront.

The quality and variety of residences at Wynyard Central mean there is a home to suit you no matter what stage of life you are at.

Scheme 2

Built to stand the test of time

Willis Bond & Co projects are synonymous with quality and excellence.

The company has a proven track record of delivering innovative and durable developments for long-lasting communities.

The buildings of Wynyard Central are designed using state-of-the-art engineering, technology, construction quality and sustainability principles.

It shows in details such as floors, walls and ceilings that achieve high levels of acoustic performance through choice of materials, wall and cavity thicknesses, high studs and double glazing. It’s also apparent in the attention paid to the latest in communication technology and connectivity.

Most significant of all is how essential sustainable principles and durability have been in the building’s design and construction. These are the first residences of their type and scale in New Zealand to target a Homestar 7 rating for sustainability and energy efficiency.

Sustainability features will include high levels of thermal protection, rainwater harvesting, dedicated bike parks and storage, shared hybrid-powered cars for residents’ use, significant construction and demolition waste reductions, and buildings designed to optimise natural ventilation and lighting.

Wynyard Central will stand the test of time for generations to come

Scheme 3

An exceptional blend of city and waterfront living

Living in Wynyard Quarter on the edge of one of the world’s most beautiful harbours and in the heart of Auckland city means you can enjoy waterfront cafés, award-winning restaurants, green parks and promenades that are all on your doorstep. Wynyard Quarter offers the very best of Auckland just a short stroll away.

Wynyard Quarter has been rejuvenated, but its maritime heritage has been preserved and still holds fast with fishing boats, super yachts and ferries still leaving from here.

It’s the location of Auckland’s fish market and scores of businesses in the marine industry. The largest marina in the southern hemisphere –Westhaven – sits immediately to the west.

Living here gives you the outdoor and boating life Auckland is famous for with the inner-city close at hand. You can walk to work, leave home later, arrive home earlier and enjoy more time doing the things you love. Even popping home for lunch becomes a genuine option for those working in the city.

Wynyard Central is one of those rare instances where the quality of the design within is matched by the brilliance of the location and the range of leisure activities and facilities at your doorstep.

The perfect choice, whatever your lifestyle

The first stage of Wynyard Central includes three different styles of residences, pavilions, townhouses and apartments, offering a wide selection of contemporary homes to suit a range of lifestyles. The residences are priced from $1,150,000 for a two bedroom apartment with car park, and $1,495,000 for a three bedroom apartment with car park. We have sold out of one bedroom apartments. Further details and floor plans for a selection of residences on offer can be viewed here.


The pavilions are distinct, free-standing buildings which overlook Daldy Street Park. Each is a showcase of sustainable urban living with west-facing balconies and loggias to embrace the views and the sun.

The individual pavilions are on a modest scale and provide for only one, two or three apartments on each level; the result is light and airy apartments that provide a real sense of intimacy.

On the ground floor of Daldy Street you will find boutique retailers and cafés, while the pavilion apartments are accessed from a charming lane off Pakenham Street.

The lane runs parallel to Daldy Street providing entrances to the pavilions on one side and to the townhouses on the other. Paving and planting add to its picturesque nature and its European atmosphere.


A row of eight townhouses is accessed via private patios and individual garages that open to the lane. They are developed over three levels with a north-west-facing terrace on the top floor and a master suite on the
middle level. Clad in brick with planted roofs, the terraces create an urban oasis – private yet part of the intimate community.

Within the townhouses, flexible ground-floor space opening to the patio means they can easily accommodate people who would like to work from home or be used as separate accommodation for guests or teenage children.


The larger apartment building is situated behind the row of townhouses and is accessed from the Pakenham Street laneway. It has been designed to complement the neighbouring Southern Spars character building. The design uses generously-sized cantilevered terraces to provide a visual focus, and is clad with precast concrete wall panels and aluminium windows. The ground floor level is clad with brick veneer in order to provide a link to the townhouses and form a base to the buildings.

The apartments come with one, two or three bedrooms and are generally dual aspect with floor-to-ceiling glazing maximising the daylight. The apartments include expansive balconies, which extend the indoor environment to the views beyond. There are options that include a separate media room, study or extra-large balconies.

The laneway connecting the apartment building to Pakenham Street has a character similar to those in Melbourne or to Brick Lane in London’s East End. The intimacy of the lane makes the ground floor of the apartments a perfect location for cafés and boutique retail.
