So we can give up valuable wharf space for a football? stadium, but not use the existing long wharves for the longer cruise ships -instead expanding further into the harbour?  The council is going mad.

Here is a question.

In the future when the port closes and the land of the wharf area is returned to the public will all of the reclamation be removed to return harbour area to more water space?

My guess is it will be deemed “too valuable” and all the space used for development.

Any thoughts?

I'm looking forward to the day that such valuable land isn't used to store cars. I'm also ok with the reclaimed areas being turned into public space but I don't want to see apartments or a football stadium being built there. I think we can do better for the people of Auckland than that.

The 2030 Auckland Blues are 2 minutes away from winning the Super Rugby final with a unassailable lead when the Queens Wharf mooring dolphin tethering the Titanic II catastrophically fails causing the ship to run into the newly completed subterranean Waterfront Stadium resulting in the tragic loss of all 15 spectators watching the match.

No developer is ever going to fund a waterfront stadium.
If the project was ever going to fly it would be a PPPP not to be confused for a PPP.
Public pays for private profits.

For those of you that are concerned about the welfare of the Auckland Blues team I failed to mention that the team played the entire match wearing mandatory full body PFD,s resulting in no loss of life.
Team management spoke highly of the advice they received from ETNZ regarding safety at sea after the 2021 AC Cup resulted in no final racing take place due to a fatal high speed collision between all four syndicates during a fleet race that saw all crews perish.

Of course it would have to be a floating stadium to cope with the imminently predicted sea rise!

Good Idea SP then it can be towed to different ports for major games.

 

Just think of an AB tests at Tauranga, Gisborne Napier, Picton, Timaru, Buff and New plymonth.
