61 Kilmore Street ChristchurchThe 690sqm property is comprised of a ground, first and second floor which are each 400sqm in size plus 30 car parks available for use. 

“61 Kilmore Street has undergone a huge restoration process and offers three floors, allowing feasibility for both small and larger tenants as there is the option of taking up contiguous space” says Williams.

Located just outside Christchurch CBD and close to Victoria Street, this office property was completely stripped down to a skeleton of concrete and steel and rebuilt to over 100% of the new building code.

This site features excellent road frontage allowing for signage which is an added bonus for tenants and lies in close proximity to the busy Victoria Street, which has been labelled Christchurch’s ‘golden mile’ as post-quake development in the city has been focused on this area. It is within walking distance to Durham Street and the new development on Cambridge Terrace.

“This is a superb opportunity for businesses looking to relocate back to the city as it is in a great spot close to the CBD and offers quality space with rental levels which will surprise the most cost conscious of tenants” adds Williams.

Williams says the building is a testament to great engineering, “four large corner piles were drilled down 26 metres whilst additional steel beams were attached below ground level and to the already piled concrete floor. Sturdy cross braces were then attached to the underground beams providing added reinforcement. These were then welded to further cross beams which can be seen in the exterior of the building.”

Martin Donnithorn of Donnithorn Architects further redesigned the exterior of 61 Kilmore Street, giving it a contemporary new look by adding large windows and cladding the exterior in etapan and cedar. This property is complete with glazing on three sides, adding natural light and internal ambience. ​
