REPOST FOR NEW THREAD

Major revamp planned for Hamilton city block



LINK

Quote:
What people know as Hamilton's Kmart building will soon be given a major facelift.

Stark Property director Matt Stark said the Hamilton Central Shopping Centre project, on Tristram Street, was one of the biggest office redevelopments to be undertaken in central Hamilton.

Work is set to start in early 2019 and will take 18 months to fully complete.

The 1.33 hectare central city site, which houses Kmart, was bought by Stark Property in 2016 for $13.4 million.
Quote:
Kmart will occupy a new 5400 square metre department store at the eastern end of the site.

Kmart's existing city store will close in early January to allow construction work and will reopen in mid-2019.

"The Kmart redevelopment will happen relatively quickly and relates to the back half of the building which is the size of a rugby field. That will get brought down to the concrete slab and get rebuilt from there," Stark said.

"It's pretty much a new build from the car park above."

A three-level commercial building will be built along the Tristram St side of the property, extending the full block between Ward and Bryce streets.The A-grade building will feature more than 14,000 sqm of lettable area. Edwards White Architects are working with Stark Property on the project.

Once completed, between 800 to 1000 office workers are expected to occupy the building, including more than 400 regional council staff from mid-2020.

Back in September, 2017 council chairman Alan Livingston indicated the council was looking at a central city site, describing its current Grey Street headquarters as not fit for purpose.

The council currently operates out of numerous locations across Hamilton.

The old Hamilton East site is to be converted into apartments which should be sell well given the location (a ton of cafes and restaurants next door) and the apartments will overlook the river.

Construction Commencing on WRC Offices

Photo from today. Two large cranes working on the site. The building will dwarf the back of the new CBD KMart building next door

WAIKATO REGIONAL COUNCIL BUILDING | 3 Floors + KMart | Project

Construction Update

Has more height than I thought it would. I think it is because the basement car parking below is (in places) one storey up already.

I wonder if the top floors will have views into Seddon Park.
