Main Beach Takapuna: Delivering a vibrant, active edge to the beachfront


Copson Group had acquired this 10,000sqm beach front site in Takapuna with the long-term objective of developing it into an asset that could be enjoyed by the local community, as well as visitors from greater Auckland and tourists.

Ignite’s project team worked closely with the client and Auckland Council’s Urban Transformation unit to develop a concept that delivered strong benefits for the local community and Auckland as a whole. The resulting design provides a vibrant, active edge to the beachfront, with tiered views of the beach and reserve that capture views of the Hauraki Gulf.  

Main Beach, the first stage in the long-term development plan, has created a dining destination that offers the local community and visitors to Takapuna a new way to enjoy the beachfront.
