Located opposite the Fonterra Centre, on the corner of Halsey and Fanshawe Streets in central Auckland, the 14,085 sqm office building will be extensively refurbished prior to the commencement of the new nine year lease in November 2017.
John Dakin, Chief Executive Officer of Goodman (NZ) Limited said, “Securing a new customer commitment, 7 months ahead of the expiry of the Vodafone tenancy, is a great result for the business. It’s an iconic building in a superb location and we will be upgrading the office areas and building services to provide Auckland Transport with a modern and efficient work environment for its 1,600 staff.”
The property is owned within the Wynyard Precinct joint venture between Goodman Property Trust and GIC, the sovereign wealth fund of Singapore.
