Now nearing completion, this new mixed-use development in the heart of Wellington's Cuba Mall, delivers 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.
The base-build construction of the brand new six-storey building is now complete and comprises 745sqm of ground floor retail space and the 9,200sqm campus focused on creative and performing arts, which is currently being fitted out in readiness to open to students in the 2018 academic year.
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 now fully leased, with new Barkers Menswear, Cotton On and Vodafone stores operating in the retail spaces along the Cuba Street pedestrian mall frontage.
