...Next to the market complex, the Yee family has built foundations for their new building with three shops on Cashel St and another three facing a rear laneway, plus two upper floors of offices. It is due for completion in April.
The project will reinstate the three-storey building the family lost in the earthquakes, which previously housed Cafe Bleu and the Zetland Tavern.
...A Yee family spokesman said they had not begun leasing their building, but were encouraged by progress in the area.
They wanted retailers rather than hospitality businesses, he said, as they felt the hospitality market was saturated. Upstairs they would target professionals such as accountants and lawyers, he said.
