This new mixed-use development in the heart of Wellington's Cuba Mall has delivered a brand new 9,000sqm creative arts campus for Whitireia WelTec and 745sqm of ground floor retail space.
Situated on the site of the old Deka building, the Te Auaha campus building is a joint project with the Whitireia WelTec Strategic Partnership.
This brand new six-storey building is now complete. It comprises 745sqm of ground floor retail space and a 9,200sqm creative and performing arts campus, which opened its doors to students in early 2018.
The first-floor heritage façade has been strengthened and retained as part of the development and the building’s structure is designed to the seismic requirements for an Importance Level 3 building, which is effectively equivalent to 130% of those required for a typical office building.
The development is fully leased, with Barkers Menswear, Cotton On and Vodafone stores operating in the retail spaces along the Cuba Street pedestrian mall frontage.
