Hurstmere Rd Upgrade

In April this year Reset Urban Design was appointed by Auckland Transport to lead the design for the $12m Hurstmere Road Streetscape Upgrade Project. We are extremely excited to be involved in this significant project that is right at our doorstep.

This long awaited project is pivotal to the surging redevelopment of Takapuna, Auckland’s loveliest beachside town centre. We see the opportunities to make central Hurstmere Road into a linear public plaza, facilitating retail activity that is safe, easy to use, equipped with smart features, with extended multiple uses and one that celebrates real local character. Designs for vehicle movement and parking will be carefully managed and rainfall collected, controlled and filtered in a system that is ecologically sensitive to the coastal environment. Our multidisciplinary team of consultants has many definite strengths that will add to Auckland Transport and Auckland Councils project to make it a show case of urban sustainability, premium streetscape and an inclusive development process to be emulated.
