246 Queen Street redevelopment is located in a section of Auckland that is earmarked for future growth with the new Aotea train station and plans for pedestrianisation and light rail to Queen Street. Within walking distance to AUT, Auckland Art Gallery, Aotea Square and Auckland Town Hall this site is in a prime position for its proposed mixed use of Commercial, Retail and Hospitality spaces.
The Project involves reutilising the existing building structure while completing a full strip out of all levels back to a base build offering. Architect Fearon Hay have re-purposed the existing atrium into a floor to floor curtain wall glazing system that will draw natural light through the centre of the building into all the commercial levels and further down into the food and beverage offerings below.
RCP provided strategic feasibility, option assessment and design advice to the Client for this $20million redevelopment and were subsequently engaged to provide development and project management services on what is a $20million redevelopment project with a vision to revitalise the iconic mid-city building as a new high quality landmark for Auckland.
