$20m retail hub for Auckland
A historic building at 246 Queen Street is being redeveloped to form the base of a $20 million design-led commercial and retail hub in Auckland’s midtown.
The design is influenced by the era in which the building was originally constructed and reflects 246 Queen Street’s central role in Auckland’s fashion industry.
“246 Queen Street is a historic landmark property in midtown Auckland and we plan to restore it to its former glory while accommodating the needs of forward-thinking businesses, retailers and hospitality operators,” Wilshire Group sales manager Christie Wrightson said.
The eight story building will provide retail, food and beverage and office space within 250 metres from the new Aotea Station. Showers, lockers, bike storage and gym facilities will also be included.
“As an organisation we strive to create spaces that are tailored to benefit the immediate demographic and wider community,” Wrightson said.
