Wellingtonians are invited to take a peek behind the curtain of the city’s long-awaited Shelly Bay project, with a first look at development renders including detail on the green spaces, a ferry landing, diverse mix of housing types and retail and hospitality opportunities.

The renders and video - launched today on the project website - depicts the planned development, to include: more accessible and open public space than presently available, and greater accessibility to the foreshore, with an emphasis on community inclusivity and space for safe, family-focused activity.

The official site name Shelly Bay Taikuru was given by mana whenua and encompasses and acknowledges the history of the area but also creates a new future and association with the land.

This is an important milestone for Taranaki Whānui in progressing iwi aspirations, in its post-settlement era.

A key design driver for Shelly Bay is ensuring the overarching vision for Shelly Bay is maintained at all times. This is guided by the Shelly Bay master plan and design guide and overseen by a design panel of professionals, in accordance with the original agreement with Wellington City Council. The panel will be vested with ensuring the final development and design solution for Shelly Bay Taikuru is consistent with the approved consent and guiding principles
of the Master Plan.

In implementing the master plan, designers will be challenged to deliver not only highly
efficient and sustainable structures but also beautiful building forms befitting of the pristine
coastal environment they will be located in.

This approach is consistent with that taken across a number of exemplar
developments, where design controls and quality are critical in ensuring the long term
sustainability of the development but also community.

Consent is expected to be lodged in April.
