Major planned Auckland building projects

We are keeping a list of major Auckland construction projects, given that these will add to a nationally-significant value and stress the capacity of the construction industry to recruit for them.

At this stage we plan only to list projects that will have a total cost of about $100 mln, but other smaller projects that have key icon or infrastructure importance may also be included.

This list was last updated on 25 September 2018.

Nice list David. Thank you for that. Perhaps an indication of where they are would be nice, for those of us who are unaware of Auckland's street names (most of us?).

Aha, thank you for that.

Thanks David, great list (and impressive). Could you pencil in a reminder in 1, 2 & 3 years to update us with progress on these works please. Thanks
