Unique space to lease in Merivale’s Megatower

Unique space to lease in Merivale’s Megatower

An architecturally designed commercial space that stands out from the crowd is available for lease in Merivale.

Award-winning architect Thom Craig designed the building for the site at 133 Office Rd. His ‘Megatower’ efficiently maximises the 27sqm site, offering 62sqm of space spread over three storeys and a mezzanine.

The ground floor is 18sqm which can be used as a garage or storage area. The first and second floors offer another 18sqm each and are self-contained with bathroom and kitchen facilities and built-in cabinetry. A built-in ladder leads to a mezzanine floor with another 8sqm of space.

The height of the building allows for rooftop views across the city, and the first floor hosts a small balcony which looks out onto the road.

The structure has plenty of glass to let in the daylight. The combination of electronic external louvres and air-conditioning throughout keeps the building at a comfortable temperature.

The building has revitalised the site, which was once the location of the Merivale Public Toilets.

The bold design would suit a tenant looking to base themselves in a stand-out building, whether a small business wishing to boost their profile, or a commercial tenant intending to live and work onsite.

JLL agent Robert Williams is marketing the property.

“Imagine directing your clients to your new home in this very special building. You can’t miss it – there’s just nothing else like it.

“It is located right next to Merivale shopping centre, just off Papanui Rd. It’s an area well-known by locals and very close to the city centre. Cathedral Square is 3km away and Christchurch airport is just 8km away.”

JLL has released its Pulse report for Christchurch’s office market, for the first quarter of 2016. The research shows that tenants have plenty of choice in terms of office space, as there is a surplus of stock available, particularly in the CBD.

However that stock tends to be of a much larger floor plate, Robert Williams says.

“For a small business, the chance to lease a compact, architecturally designed space like this one is rare.”
