A premium new office building with retail and hospitality spaces in the heart of Wellington's waterfront.
Designed by Athfield Architects, this exceptional new base-isolated office building is nearing completion on Site 10 in the heart of the regenerated Kumutoto Precinct, only a five-minute walk from Lambton Quay and Wellington's railway station.
The building's state-of-the-art base-isolated structure provides 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 create a cellular concrete wall structure, which is a type 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. These spaces all benefit from the building's extensively glazed facade, which maximises natural light and views over Wellington’s harbour and cityscape.
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 attracted several 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, The Co-operative Bank has taken premises on level two and MAS has taken the balance of space on level 3.
The majority of the ground floor retail, hospitality and creative hub spaces are now leased; tenants include Capital City Motors, Black Doris Cafe and Mall Drycleaning. Wellington Hospitality Group is also set to open a bar/restaurant space in the large southern tenancy, which will connect to a boutique corporate functions centre on level 1.
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 are due to be completed mid-2018. Click here to view construction progress.
The upper office floors are now fully leased. Four spaces remain available on the ground floor - three creative hub spaces between 40-90sqm (two of these spaces can be combined into a larger 130sqm space) and a 90sqm retail tenancy. These spaces are suitable for small start-ups and creative teams looking to co-locate with nationally recognised businesses in brand new, seismically resilient premises.
