Shelly Bay

New Seaside Town for Wellington

The development of Shelly Bay represents a significant milestone for Wellington. Through the Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust (PNBST) and The Wellington Company, the redevelopment of Shelly Bay can now be made possible.

Positioned on the Miramar Peninsular, Shelly Bay has for over 130 years remained guarded and off limits to any form of development.

Shelly Bay is a special place, that has played an important part in defining who we are today, and as a place for tomorrow will continue to play an important role in defining how world class communities should live, work and play, setting a new benchmark for a modern standard living.

In time Shelly Bay will become home to over 850+ new residents and a place which many thousands more will seek to experience and enjoy. A key element of this new community is its underpinning commitment to sustainability and being a place that is shared and connected, founded on community building and sustainability principles that will preserve and enhance what already exists.

As a community, Shelly Bay will become a Wellington landmark, iconic for what makes Wellington a great city and most importantly a taonga tuku iho – a treasure to be passed down to future generations.
