The Wynyard Basin vision was animated by ARL's Virtual Eye for Emirates Team New Zealand, visualizing a first class event space (with minimal harbour extension) for the 36th America's Cup in 2021. The vision incorporates a centralised village spanning Auckland Viaduct basin and Wynyard Wharf, clustered team bases with public access, a legacy Emirates Team New Zealand base and public interactive innovation space, a centralised media and broadcast centre in the Viaduct Event Centre, a world class super yacht berthing facility in Wynyard Wharf and on Site 18, and a concert and performance stage and grandstand in the heart of the Wynyard Quarter.
