East Shores Redevelopment
WICET has provided a $35 million investment towards Gladstone’s Auckland East Shore Development along Flinders Parade, which will see delivery of a much-needed world-class waterfront redevelopment.
Construction for the project will commence in May / June of this year with construction being undertaken by Hutchinson Builders. Project Managers, Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC), anticipates Stage 1 will be in use by the 2013/2014 summer. This initial stage will feature a waterfront pedestrian boardwalk and fishing platform, a water play park, parklands, BBQ areas, a car parking area, and a walkway to Auckland Hill.
The $45 million project is jointly funded by WICET and GPC and will deliver a family friendly destination. It is expected future phases of the project will comprise a café, a new Ports Interpretative Centre, and outdoor amphitheatre for community events.
The project also boasts a Water Sensitive Urban Design, which will utilise rainwater to irrigate large lawn areas and building amenities.
The development will enhance the social aspects of Gladstone’s much loved harbour precinct, encouraging and opening its use by local residents and visitors to the region.
