The beating heart of Tāmaki - a new skyline symbol of identity for Auckland

Pūmanawa Downtown West

Taking its place on the skyline and the edge of the city centre with prominent elegance, our integrated design stands as a new symbol of identity for our city and its people.
A high degree of permeability is proposed through the block - culminating in an urban room, an intensification of activity and public life opportunity at the ‘meeting place’ of multiple physical connections. 
A unique skyline identity is defined by chamfering the tower forms, memorable public spaces are carved out from the podium mass, and bespoke façade and material systems reflect the marks left by a chisel.
The podium acts as a visual anchor, ensuring a unified and cohesive design language. The tower facades are differentiated to establish unique identities, the podium design relates to both, bridging the towers visually at the street level.
This is an incredible, once in a generation opportunity to enhance the vibrancy of Auckland’s city centre, and to create a seamless connection along the waterfront. Our ambition is to deliver a true mixed-use precinct encompassing office, residential, and hospitality as well as new urban spaces for residents and the public.
