MHRS Spokeswoman Bronwen Turner says the Onehunga Wharf is a strategic asset critical for making the harbour more accessible and has huge untapped potential for public and commercial use.
Onehunga port set for sale and redevelopment
The sale of the Onehunga port on the Manukau Harbour could see it turned into a bustling attraction.
The council controlled organisation Panuku Development Auckland is negotiating to buy the site from Ports of Auckland (POA) and make it available for public use.
An area similar to Wynyard Quarter is envisaged with a waterfront village, apartments and shops.
POA chief executive Tony Gibson says the port is being sold as it has become too shallow for modern shipping.
