A new town square, adding around 3000sqm of public space for the community, has been proposed for 40 Anzac Street.
This is a great opportunity to showcase good urban design principles of connectivity, activity, mixed use and high quality public realm as a driver for increased economic, social, cultural and environmental activity in one of Auckland's great centres. In supporting the proposals UDF is encouraging better use of our existing urban environment and creating a wide variety of opportunity and choice for our communities.

40 Anzac Street will be developed to create a mix of residential, commercial and public open spaces with activated laneways linking the site to Hurstmere Road, Hurstmere Green and Takapuna Beach.
On 6 March 2018 a “change of use” was granted by Auckland Council’s Planning Committee for 40 Anzac Street. We’re now working with the communities of Takapuna on future planning for physical public spaces and their preferred uses and activities.
The proposed development will include:
. People-friendly public spaces including a new town square that will allow for activities like a market
. Well-designed laneways creating connections with Anzac Street, Lake Road and Hurstmere Road
. Safer access to Potter’s Park
. Suitable alternative short-stay parking
There is an additional site approximately 200m away on the corner of Huron, Northcroft and Auburn streets, called the Gasometer site. Panuku will build a multi-storey carpark there to accommodate for Takapuna’s current and future carparking needs. This would be completed before any disruption to 40 Anzac Street occurs.
The vision for the other part of the Gasometer site is to create a mix of commercial, retail and residential spaces.
