200 Armagh Street, Christchurch Central / by Nat Voisey

Built in 1933, this large Art Deco white and peach building sits at 200 Armagh St, directly opposite the largest playground in the Southern Hemisphere - The Margaret Mahy Playground - and bookmarks the entire East Frame. Backing onto inner-city residential development One Central, and Rauora Park, the structure is listed in the Christchurch District Plan as being of historical and social significance, and will be the Gateway to the entire East Frame.

Set to become something special, 200 Armagh Street will house a world class exhibition space which will be the hero for the ground floor, complemented by a mix of retail and hospitality spaces. The second storey will be converted to high value office spaces with recessed, north facing courtyards to provide exceptional amenity to employees and their clients. The original high ceilings will be exposed and enhanced through natural light, complementing the authentic palate of timber and steel.

We are now seeking a hospitality operator for the prime north western corner of the building, breaking out onto a west lane that connects the East Frame. The hospitality will also include seating along the northern facade with a raised floor to provide parents views over the playground whilst being sheltered from the elements. Sizes are flexible and options available for further outdoor seating.

A truly unique and premium offering.
