Our Vision

Port Nikau will become Whangārei’s inspired urban waterfront community, designed for the future and offering a new way of living, with high-quality waterfront residential accommodation and commercial opportunities.

Designing a waterfront community

This exciting development has been years in the making and will transform Whangārei’s marine and commercial precincts while shaping what will become the city’s only urban-designed waterfront community.  It is very rare that urban developments of this size and scale are undertaken in already established cities, and with a carefully considered urban plan that ensures a wide range of housing options, green spaces, marinas and walking and cycle trails, Port Nikau will add a new dimension to Whangārei city.

Inspiration from around the world

Seeking inspiration from similar developments, and particularly port redevelopments, around the world, Port Nikau has designed a Masterplan for the development that will include quality residential precincts, village centre, entertainment and recreational areas and business and commercial precincts, all guided by Urban Design Protocol to create a quality urban design. The plan, developed over the last 15 years, has been thoughtfully created to meet the current and future needs of Northland.

Supporting the region’s economy

Port Nikau will support the region’s economic development by meeting community demand for high quality social urban living; inner-city green spaces; community facilities for walking and cycling; retirement residences; and retail and commercial activity, including a marine precinct and access for residents to the beautiful Whangārei Harbour. Port Nikau will become a destination, not just for residents and businesses, but for the wider Whangārei community.
