A prime new office building with retail and hospitality spaces in the heart of Wellington's waterfront.
Designed by Athfield Architects, this exceptional new building will benefit from an extensively glazed facade on all sides to maximise views over Wellington’s harbour and cityscape. Located on Site 10 in the heart of the regenerated Kumutoto Precinct, it is only a five minute walk from Lambton Quay and the railway station.
The building's state-of-the-art base isolated structure will provide seismic performance significantly greater than typical Wellington office buildings and equivalent to that required for hospitals and other essential emergency facilities. Below the base isolated structure over 1,200 piles form the building's foundations. They are interlocked together to form a cellular concrete wall structure, which is a form of ground improvement designed to prevent liquefaction and mitigate the potential for lateral spreading.
The building comprises four upper levels of Grade A office space with high ceilings and 2,000sqm+ floor plates to enable flexible, efficient layouts and maximise natural light and views of the harbour. The ground floor incorporates a mix of retail, hospitality and smaller office units along with the main building lobby and the innovative public walkway through the building that provides covered pedestrian access between Waterloo Quay and the waterfront. The building also incorporates a basement for tenant car parking.
The building has already attracted three major office tenants; leading professional firm PwC is relocating its Wellington office onto levels three and four and has taken exclusive naming rights with the building to be known as The PwC Centre. Leading New Zealand rural insurer FMG has also taken space on level one and The Co-operative Bank has taken premises on level two.
Willis Bond’s proposal was selected as the preferred development option for the large 3,000sqm site by Site 10 owner, Wellington Waterfront Limited and resource consent was granted in October 2015. Construction works have commenced and are due to be completed in 2018. Click here to view construction progress.
The spaces available in the building are outlined below. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please email email@example.com or call on 04 805 0000 for further information.
Level 1 Office Space
There is a 385sqm tenancy available on Level 1 with its own private lift lobby. The space is located at the building’s southern end and enjoys views down the quays and out to the harbour. This is a unique space, unlike any other in the city and makes the most of this prime island site on Wellington’s sought-after waterfront.
Ground Floor Office Spaces
There is a selection of smaller office spaces available on the ground floor, which are flexible enough to suit many different types of businesses – small professional firms, tech start-ups and creative teams. They are also a great option for out-of-town professionals looking for a secure Wellington base. Spaces range in size to suit teams of up to 16.
Ground Floor Retail and Hospitality Spaces
There are four spaces on the ground floor designed to accommodate a variety of uses including retail, cafe and restaurant operations. All spaces benefit from maximised natural light and approximately 4m ceilings.
The two larger spaces (140sqm and 340sqm) are located on the waterfront and plaza-facing sides of the building. They are perfectly suited to hospitality use and enjoy expansive frontages, harbour views and links to newly landscaped areas.
The two smaller spaces (30sqm and 60sqm) will suit a range of retail operators looking to benefit from the large onsite tenant population and being strategically located on the main route from the railway station into the city.
