BNZ returning to the heart of the Christchurch CBD

BNZ returning to the heart of the Christchurch CBD

BNZ is delighted to announce that the bank will be returning to the Christchurch CBD after agreeing commercial terms to occupy premises in the Cashel Square development in the centre of the retail precinct.

BNZ Chief Executive Anthony Healy says the bank is looking forward to being a part of the central business community’s exciting vision of a new Christchurch.

“In 2011, BNZ made a commitment to the city and a promise to our customers to get back into the heart of the Christchurch central business district as soon as it was possible,” says Healy. “The announcement today of this significant investment for BNZ is a fulfilment of that promise.”

Developed by Lichfield Holdings Ltd, Cashel Square will be built to 100% of the new building standards. And its interior will be just as impressive with a engaging new BNZ store and a BNZ Partners Business Centre being built.

There will be approximately 200 staff working across the two areas and the BNZ Partners Business Centre on the top floor of the building will be available to be utilised by clients as a business and networking facility to enable growth and facilitate innovation.

Meanwhile, the retail store will have a bright, modern layout and be equipped with the latest technology designed to make banking easy for BNZ customers, giving them what they need to help them be good with money.

The announcement of BNZ’s return to the CBD is the latest example of the bank’s ongoing investment in the city and people of Christchurch and the Canterbury recovery effort.

In 2012 the BNZ backed the Enterprise Precinct and Innovation Campus (EPIC), which is a world-class collaborative home for a number of innovation-based businesses. And, since September last year the bank’s specialist Future Hub team has offered advice and support to help people move ahead with their complex Canterbury property issues.

BNZ’s offices, Partners Business Centre and retail store will be part of Stage 2 of Lichfield Holdings’ Cashel Square development.

BNZ’s offices and Partners Business Centre will occupy 2985 sqm of the top floor of Stage 2 fronting Cashel Street.

BNZ’s retail store will occupy 477 sqm of the ground floor of Stage 2 on Cashel Street on the eastern side of the complex.

The target date for the completion of the development is December 2016.
