The waterfront is expected to be a major driver of Auckland’s economic future. By 2040 the waterfront redevelopment will contribute $4.29 billion to Auckland.
Over the next 30 years Auckland’s waterfront redevelopment will directly support 20,000 new full time jobs in Auckland and will contribute indirectly to a further 20,000 jobs across the region. The cruise industry, tourism and events and construction will play a huge role in this. Nearly 14,000 people are expected to be employed across the waterfront in a range of industries including business services, food/beverage, retail, cultural/community services, marine and fishing.
Below is an overview of projects Waterfront Auckland is currently working on to help Auckland and the Waterfront area reach its true potential.
