Project Description

From the late 1920s, the Hobsonville Point area was the site of a Royal New Zealand Air Force base with its flying boats and Catalina seaplanes. This history underpinned a proposal by Willis Bond to develop 1.8 hectares on the point’s eastern tip at Catalina Bay.

Over several stages, the rundown airforce buildings and under-utilised waterfront land are being transformed into a thriving seaside village. The first part of Stage 1 saw a row of seven old airforce workshops converted into office and commercial spaces. The second part saw new hospitality, retail and office spaces.
