Auckland Explores Waterfront Locations In Case Team NZ Brings America's Cup To City
Waterfront Auckland "is exploring six waterfront locations in the event Team New Zealand win the America's Cup and bring the Auld Mug back to the City of Sails," according to Bernard Orsman of the NEW ZEALAND HERALD. The council body "has started thinking about where the team compounds and a race village would be with an eye to triggering some new development." Apart from locating the race village at Queens Wharf, the other five sites "would require significant work and financial investment." They include "building a new marina within Westhaven marina, a sheltered compound at the tip of Wynyard Quarter, Wynyard Wharf, a wharf extension to Halsey St and Captain Cook Wharf" (NZ HERALD, 8/27).
