CentrePort signs multi million dollar agreement

28 May 2004

Wellington Port Company, CentrePort Ltd, signs multi million dollar agreement to build new office premises for Statistics NZ in their Commercial Business Park

CentrePort Wellington and Statistics NZ have finalised an agreement today which will see building begin on a new five story complex for Statistics NZ at CentrePort Wellington’s Commercial Business Park next month.

CentrePort Wellington is developing the new building and will be the owner of the approximately $20 million dollar complex while Statistics NZ will be the long-term tenant.

The building, which consists of a ground and 4 upper floors, is to be situated in Hinemoa Street, and will be positioned south of the Westpac Stadium Waterloo Quay over-bridge. The state-of-the-art complex has been specifically designed for Statistics NZ and includes a laminated glass curtain façade along with energy efficiency systems.

CEO of CentrePort Wellington Liz Ward is delighted with the agreement reached.

“In conjunction with our existing tenants, the NZ Rugby Union and TelstraClear, we welcome Statistics NZ to our Commercial Business Park. It is an exciting time for CentrePort Wellington as we look to grow and expand with new partners. We are looking forward to a long and beneficial relationship with Statistics NZ.”

Government Statistician Brian Pink is also excited about the new development.

“The new facility in the CentrePort Business Park is a major step forward for Statistics New Zealand. It brings all our Wellington based staff together for the first time in many years and will enable us to create working environments appropriate to a knowledge based organisation as we move into the first decades of the 21st Century.”

Work begins on the new building in mid June and Statistics NZ staff are expected to move from their current Molesworth Street and Lambton Quay premises into the new complex by December next year.

This new building development is one further step in CentrePort Wellington's long-term strategic vision to enhance its overall economic performance by growing its port facilities, service provisions and property development.
