Catalina Bay

Developed by Willis Bond & Co and masterplanned by Cheshire Architects, Catalina Bay is proposed to follow a three stage plan. Stage One, focused on the refurbishment of existing heritage buildings is set to be complete by early 2019. Two further stages are planned to include 60-70 quality waterfront apartments alongside a mixture of commercial, hospitality and retail tenancies. Central to the Catalina Bay development is the area's Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) history. Originally built circa 1928, the location became Auckland’s premiere flying boat base where it housed and flew the Sunderland and Catalina seaplanes.

Hobsonville Point is an award-winning masterplanned community delivered by Hobsonville Land Company, and will have an end population of over 10,000 residents. Situated in the heart of this community, and connected by ferry, bus and both north and west motorways, Catalina Bay is ideally located and easy to get to. 

An impressive 4km Coastal Walkway winds through Catalina Bay, connecting the precinct to the wider area. 

Despite Auckland's harbour location, it is difficult to find a co-oridnated mixed use precinct on the water. Catalina Bay is uniquely positioned and ready to be transformed into an active seaside village.

"There was an intangible sea-change this weekend; it put a spring in our step and gave us a fervour for fresh air that we haven’t felt in months. With the desire to get outside and fill our lungs with a provincial atmosphere, there was no better way to do so than by visiting one of Auckland’s many proper farmers’ markets." - Madeline Saxton-Beer
