Identified post the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake as part of the community wide “Reimagine Kaikoura” campaign a proposal was submitted to the government seeking funding for the feasibility of a number of opportunities.

In 2018 Kaikōura District Council in partnership with Te Rununga o Kaikoura was awarded seed funding from the Provincial Growth Fund (PGF) to investigate the suitability of development concepts including the re-development of the old wharf known as Wakatu Quay. The Council successfully applied to PGF for the Kaikōura Marine Development Project to develop the 5000sqm site.

A historic esplanade stretches from the township and runs parallel to the beach for 1.8kms connecting the town and the headland. Often described as the best view in all of Kaikoura this historic location represents the epitome of the Kaikoura landscape with sweeping views up to the majestic Seawards Kaikoura range, framed by the blue Pacific Ocean and cloud beating sky. The location has become ironically linked with Kaikoura internationally often with the tagline of “where the mountains meet the sea”
In order for the development of Wakatu Quay to take place, architectural concept design & plans need to be developed and agreement reached by the project and council on a proposed design. We are looking for a design partner to consider the potential of the site and design a set of flexible commercial buildings capable of accommodating a range of uses.
