Catalina Bay comprises 1.8 hectares of north-facing waterfront land at the tip of Hobsonville Point. This project represents a true mixed-use precinct and will deliver unique retail, hospitality, commercial and residential offerings.
Catalina Bay, previously called The Landing, is our next exciting mixed-use project in Auckland and focuses on an area of now under-utilised waterfront land at the eastern edge of Hobsonville Point.
The project is set to transform this area into an active seaside village consisting of a considered blend of quality retail, hospitality, commercial and residential offerings.
Located only 11km from the CBD and connected by ferry, bus and both north and west motorways, Catalina Bay is ideally situated to become a thriving hub for the burgeoning Hobsonville Point community, as well as an attractive destination within the wider Auckland area.
Willis Bond successfully acquired the rights to develop this land in August 2016 and has engaged Cheshire Architects to masterplan the development. A cornerstone of the project is the recognition of the site’s rich and important history; it was owned by the Royal New Zealand Air Force and was historically the home and launching site for the impressive Catalina flying-boats.
The site will be developed as a four stage masterplan, beginning with the refurbishment of seven existing air force buildings to deliver a mixture of hospitality, commercial, office and retail offerings and to successfully rehouse the popular Farmers Market. Later stages will include residential components.
