Port Nikau is currently collaborating with urban designers to define the unique precincts within the development. Engineering design of infrastructure, roading and construction of the waterfront development around Port Nikau’s village centre will continue through 2017. It is anticipated that residential construction will get underway in late 2017. The project will include quality residential precincts; village centre; entertainment and recreational areas; and business and commercial precincts, all guided by the Urban Design Protocol to create quality urban design. Port Nikau is supporting the region’s economic development by meeting community demand for high quality social urban living; inner city green spaces; retirement residences; community facilities for walking and cycling; and retail and commercial activity, including a marine precinct.
Yes. Port Nikau will feature inner city green spaces, including walking and cycleways. Landscaping will continue in 2016 with walking and cycling access to allow the public to enjoy the Port Nikau space available in early 2017.
