CentrePort Wellington launches Business Park

15 July 2005

CentrePort Wellington launches Business Park on prime inner city land

Wellington Mayor Kerry Prendergast officially launched a 6.5 hectare business and recreational park on Wellington’s waterfront last night to be called Harbour Quays.

The land owned by CentrePort Wellington will be developed into a major commercial, retail business and recreational space with room for at least a dozen multi level individual buildings.

Harbour Quays Development Manager Ray Di Leva told the 100 strong crowd at the launch, it’s an exciting development for the city.

“Harbour Quays is the most significant development in Wellington’s commercial property market in the last ten years and the first based on “looking after the environment”. We envisage the tenant mix will include corporate, government departments and retail with a strong emphasis on providing recreational space such as parks, cafes and entertainment facilities.”

“We’ve put significant effort into ensuring Harbour Quays integrates well with the existing buildings, the city and especially Wellington’s Waterfront. Underpinned by an environmentally friendly philosophy, all character buildings will be retained and views to the harbour carefully protected,” says Di Leva.

Chief Executive of CentrePort Wellington Liz Ward adds:

“After many months of hard work we are proud to launch Harbour Quays today. Its development is another step in CentrePort Wellington’s growth strategy but at the same time we remain 100% committed to our core service, of being a port company, as we look to grow our integrated logistics business even further,” says Ward.

Mayor Kerry Prendergast in opening Harbour Quays told the crowd:

“Harbour Quays is a fantastic development for Wellington and I commend CentrePort Wellington on its foresight and vision in turning this area into a business park that caters not just for the needs of business in Wellington, but also their employees and our residents. I am sure Harbour Quays will be a great success and I look forward to the first stage of it – the completion of the Statistics NZ building and surrounding infrastructure – later this year.”

Existing tenants at Harbour Quays include the head office of the NZ Rugby Football Union, Williment Travel and TelstraClear. The first built-to-order building in the complex is the $20 million Statistics New Zealand building, due for completion in October.

The new properties will vary in size, floor levels and use some floor plates comparable to prime CBD real estate. The height restriction is 27 metres or approximately six stories. The architecture of Harbour Quays will incorporate both character and modern design trends and the low-rise buildings will offer maximum space, natural light and superior views. There will also be extensive landscaping with native trees and shrubs, lighting and street furniture to contribute to more visual space.

A number of prospective tenants are currently in negotiation with Harbour Quays.
