Port land repurposing

With the demolition of two buildings on port nearing completion, a repurposing of the vacant land is beginning.

CPL House was demolished this year and work on land remediation of the site formerly occupied by the quake-damaged BNZ building is in its final stages.

The removal of CPL House has freed up 9,000 square metres of space allowing for a new operational area. It will also enable us to install a permanent stormwater drainage system, which will improve the port’s environmental resilience.

The former BNZ site, now known as the F Site development, has been cleared with final paving work remaining.

This site will be used by StraitNZ Bluebridge as a freight vehicle marshalling area to improve the flow of traffic to and from ferries.
