Leading Specialist Law Firm Returns to the CBD

Canterbury law firm, Tavendale and Partners has signaled a return to the CBD with the announcement that it is the anchor tenant in a premium commercial development on the corner of Durham and Chester Streets. Comprising two three-storey buildings joined at the top floor by an air bridge, the development will be known as Tavendale and Partners House.

“Continuing to grow the commercial success of our clients has been our key consideration in choosing where our new Christchurch office should be,” says Director, Mark Tavendale.

“After reviewing all of the various options, both in terms of location and building, the decision was simple. This is a central location close to all the commercial banks and the soon-to-be revitalised commercial hub of the city and the development itself allows us to better accommodate the particular needs of our clients.

“Many of our clients are involved in the agribusiness and commercial sectors. They often don’t have an office in the city so we were adamant from the outset that we needed somewhere where our clients could meet with their various business associates and advisers or simply deal with pressing matters if they arise,” adds Tavendale.

Boasting a contemporary business centre, Tavendale and Partners’ clients will have access to hot desks and meeting rooms, Wi-Fi and printers; not to mention a decent cup of coffee.

“Having spent the past three years in temporary space spread over two seperate buildings, we have also been really conscious of the need to provide a great environment for our staff so we have ensured that there is lots of natural light and fresh air in the offices.”

The top floor opens onto balconies looking west over Cranmer Square and Hagley Park. There is also plentiful ground floor parking for clients and staff.

Property investor Richard Peebles of Peebles Group believes that having an anchor tenant involved early on in the design stages of a development is the difference between good space and exceptional space reflective of the needs of those who will eventually breathe life into the structure.

“It’s great to see a leading specialist law firm such as Tavendale and Partners choose to work with me on this site. It is a fantastic location for a law firm whose clients need to be at the heart of things. I look forward to seeing them shift into the office early in the New Year and to their clients enjoying such a great location.”

This is the fifteenth commercial building Peebles has developed since the earthquake.

Tavendale and Partners is scheduled to be in their new offices by March 2015.
