Commercial Bay has bought a whole new energy to Auckland.
Bringing together the largest concentration of high quality retail and food and beverage in the city and the striking new PwC Tower, Commercial Bay is set to become the most transformational project Auckland has ever seen.
About Commercial Bay.
Officially opened by Rt Hon Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in June 2020, Commercial Bay will be a new and vibrant public precinct at the heart of Auckland.
Commercial Bay encompasses the preeminent waterfront axis from Quay Street, Queen Street, Lower Albert Street and Customs Street, resurrecting the location’s original name.
It embraces the best of the area's existing buildings and links them together creating a working population of 10,000 people. At the heart of Commercial Bay sits the stunning new 39 level PwC office tower that has transformed Auckland’s skyline.
At the base of the tower sits a three-level retail precinct unlike anything Auckland has seen before. The laneway design will redefine retail in Auckland, with global flagship brands, diverse food and beverage and the highest concentration of quality retailers in one central, easily accessible location.
NH Architecture from Melbourne was appointed as the retail architect and Woods Bagot based out of San Francisco was appointed as the commercial architect. To ensure we created a design that was international in its quality while also retaining local relevance and character, New Zealand architecture firm Warren and Mahoney are now the lead architects on the project.
Other key partners in the delivery of Commercial Bay include Project Managers RCP and Fletcher Construction.
Located at the heart of the Auckland waterfront, Commercial Bay is a hub of business, retail and food and beverage bringing together over 10,000 people in one connected location.
