Investing in Christchurch – the new PwC Centre

Investing in Christchurch – the new PwC Centre



PwC is delighted to confirm our role as anchor tenants for the new CBD development in the heart of Christchurch’s CBD.

The new building will be known as The PwC Centre, and at 56-64 Cashel Street, will be ideally located on the Avon River, overlooking the Bridge of Remembrance, and central to the developing business centre, retail and justice precincts, as well as to transport links.

Regional Managing Partner Maurice Noone says, “We, at PwC, are proud to be reinforcing our commitment to Christchurch and The PwC Centre will play an important role in revitalising our city centre.

“Construction of the A-grade development, comprising of six floors, is expected to commence within the next three months, with an expected occupancy date for us of mid 2016.

“As part of our investment, the building will exceed the requirements of the current earthquake code and the development is being built to an extremely high standard, ensuring both our people and clients enjoy a safe and pleasant working environment.

“It’s important for us to play our part in rebuilding our city and moving back into the city’s heart is another demonstration of our commitment to the city. We’ve always planned to be back and together with our co-founding tenant Chapman Tripp, we’re both very excited to be able to play a part in getting this important new development off the ground,” concludes Mr Noone.

The PwC Centre is an innovative Warren and Mahoney designed building. The building is lightweight but strong and designed to 130% of the current building code (IL3). With a high level of energy efficiency and a distinctive façade that embraces its surroundings, the PwC Centre will be a landmark in the city both day and night in Christchurch’s new business district.
