The Aotea Station site has about 5000sqm of developable land owned by Auckland Council.

The station's main entrance will be in a prominent building on the corner of Wellesley Street and Mayoral Drive.

An over-station development concept

The post-construction development scenario envisages office accommodation for about 3,000 people which will encourage further CRL patronage.

The concept envisages:

  • Two commercial towers; one directly above the station box; and another to the south.
  • A wide laneway (similar to Elliott Street) with retail between the Bledisloe Building and the proposed towers would provide a strong pedestrian link from Wellesley Street and the station to Aotea Centre and the theatre district.
  • A cross site link which separates the two towers, would provide another pedestrian link to improve connectivity from Mayoral Drive to the Laneway and Aotea Square.

Controls

Any building on the site must comply with a "sunlight admission and height control plane." The diagram below shows the indicative influence on development potential

The platforms will run under Albert Street from Wellesley to Victoria Streets as shown below with other entrances located on the eastern and western sides of Albert Street where it intersects with Victoria Street.
