Urban renewal
Britomart is a transport, heritage and urban renewal precinct in Auckland’s central business district. Britomart adds a robust, memorable and vital quality to the city’s character while also serving as a successful transport interchange.

At the heart of Britomart is a transport centre linking train, bus and ferry services. The transport centre offers a beacon for the future of Auckland’s urban transport providing room for future development. Importantly its combination of open spaces, streetscapes and lanes, offers a vital and friendly pedestrian environment.

The design responds to the distinctive heritage character of the precinct by creating open spaces from which some of Auckland’s unique heritage buildings can be fully appreciated. These new public spaces bristle with energy and people 24 hours a day. A walking street and plaza offer a diverse mix of shops, restaurants, markets, cosy corners and pleasant distractions.
