124 Halsey Street East will be a six-level building located on the corner of Halsey Street and Tīramarama Way, and 124 Halsey Street West will be a nine-level building located on the corner of Autahi Lane and Tiramarama Way.
117 Pakenham Street will feature eight-levels and have a brick façade on the Pakenham Street West side of the building, to tie in with the industrial history of the location.
Both the Pakenham and Halsey buildings will have ground floor retail space and sit on top of a two-storey basement that will house 174 carparks, showering facilities, and 196 bicycle parks. End of Trip facilities have been designed to encourage sustainable transport to and from the buildings.
The Flowers Building comprises a three-level annex to 124 Halsey. With sustainable building practice at the heart of its design, the Flowers building will boast a mass timber structure, resiliently designed to achieve 100% NBS (seismic rating).
The Halsey Traders building will undergo refurbishment including structural upgrades, whilst still maintaining its character.
Precinct is working with award-winning architects Warren & Mahoney and construction partners Hawkins to deliver the final stage of the innovation precinct, targeting a 6 Green Star rating, which measures buildings’ overall sustainability and a 5-star National Australian Built Environment Rating System NZ (NABERSNZ) rating, which is an assessment of the energy used by office buildings and its tenants. As part of Precinct’s sustainability focus on new developments, 100% of the carbon emissions from construction will be offset.
Once complete, the developments will offer premium office space for businesses and their employees and be at the forefront of sustainable design, with good transport links, functional streetscapes, and welcoming public spaces nearby.
“Precinct Properties is proud to be embarking on this final stage of the innovation precinct, says Alain McKinney, Project Director at Precinct Property, “Wynyard Quarter is perfectly placed in a central location surrounded by natural and public amenities, and we know the future occupiers will love being based here once these sustainably designed and state-of-the-art buildings, are finished.”
