Wakatu Quay Development
The Kaikōura Marine Development Programme (KMDP) and the Kaikōura District Council have now approved the concept designs of Wakatu Quay by leading New Zealand architectural practice Warren and Mahoney.
The new development will revamp the area once occupied by old commercial fishing buildings which suffered damage in the 2016 earthquake. Suggestions on the potential development from the local community were included in the concept design.
It is anticipated that Wakatu Quay will provide tenancy opportunities including hospitality, tourism/activity operator, community gathering points, space to play/fish/walk and education/cultural facilities that will complement the other businesses in Kaikōura.
Mayor Craig Mackle said “It’s great to move ahead with the concept design. This means we are really starting to shape the development, finding out what’s going to work best for Kaikōura and what is going to be financially sustainable long-term.”
