Viaduct Harbour Apartments for Rent
Viaduct Basin, is it was orginally called, was built in the early 1900’s when the dramatic increase in the size of visiting cargo ships prevented them from mooring at Auckland’s original wharves and it was proposed that they moor out in the Waitemata Harbour Channel and be unloaded into "lighters" - small barges that would then ferry the goods to the new Viaduct Lighter Basin on the western side of the city wharves. The current redevelopment began in the late 1990's mainly due to the arrival of the America's Cup Challenge and the desire to open up the waterfront to all Aucklanders. It is now a thriving part of Auckland with 150 marina berths catering to pleasure craft, super yachts and commercial vessels plus cafes, restaurants, office blocks, an Event Centre, the Waterfront Theatre, hotels and a growing number of apartment complexes.
The Te Wero Pedestrian Bridge brings the two sides of the Basin closer together linking Wynyard Quarter, Silo Park and North Wharf to the café areas of Viaduct ,and Princes Wharf and the city.
