Terry Farrell bags first New Zealand job

  • Comment
Farrells has seen off the likes of Frank Gehry and Foster + Partners to land a major masterplanning project in Auckland, New Zealand.

The scheme, which marks the practice’s debut in the country, will see the 5.2ha central Newmarket area of the city redeveloped into a ‘large-scale, mixed-use’ quarter over the next decade.

Backed by AMP Capital Investors, the project aims to reintegrate a former industrial site into the local context and includes plans for a new railway station and transport interchanges as well as offices, bars, housing and a hotel.

Practice founder Terry Farrell said: ‘This exciting new city-centre development for Newmarket not only creates new high-quality public realm but will also act as a catalyst for high quality future growth to the lands adjacent to the site, furthering Auckland’s reputation as a world-class city.'

Global giants Gensler and SOM had also been shortlisted in the contest to design the masterplan which Farrells hopes to unveil next year (2009).
