A distinctive office building for lease at the heart of Auckland’s vibrant Viaduct Harbour offers a high-profile corner location with exclusive naming rights.
The office at 4 Viaduct Harbour is being marketed as Nucleus Viaduct by Colliers International leasing directors Rob Bird and Paul Dyson.
Located on the corner of Fanshawe Street and Customs Street West, the building offers 6,920.7sq m of space over six levels, including two sunny decks.
Dyson says it is a remarkable opportunity to occupy and name an entire CBD office building.
“Nucleus Viaduct is a local landmark thanks to its iconic clock tower, its corner site and its Fanshawe Street prominence, which will give the new tenants a boost in profile,” he says.
“It’s a modern building in a great location with bars, restaurants, shops and leisure amenities all within a short stroll.”
Dyson says while the area has long been renowned for its hospitality, entertainment and waterfront living, the Viaduct is also becoming more desirable to commercial and corporate tenants.
“As the CBD continues to expand westward to Wynyard Quarter and the Victoria precinct, smart companies are making the move,” he says
Notable tenants in the area include KPMG, Microsoft and Hewlett Packard, while Auckland Transport and IBM are about to relocate into neighbouring buildings.
Nearby tenants in the emerging Victoria precinct include Grant Thornton, Spark and BDO, which shares a building with media company NZME and law firm Meredith Connell.
A short stroll away is Wynyard Quarter, which is home to the offices of Fonterra, Mayne Wetherell, Datacom, Air New Zealand, Mott MacDonald, and Warren and Mahoney.
Bird says the building has a large and welcoming entrance area with a dramatic internal staircase leading up to the first floor.
“The foyer could be used as a traditional reception area, or converted to a mixed-use lobby, cafe and casual working space.”
Nucleus Viaduct also offers ample natural light and views over the Waitemata Harbour.
“The afternoon sun pours onto the large decks on the second and fifth floors, giving staff excellent spaces to socialise or entertain clients,” Bird says.
There are 68 covered car parks in the secure basement, and ample parking is also available in the adjacent parking buildings.
As well as the showcase internal stairs, the building is serviced by three elevators.
Bird says Nucleus is of excellent quality and is built to 90 per cent of the earthquake code.
The location offers easy access to motorways, he says. It is situated to the west of Albert Street so avoids most of the City Rail Link project disruption.
It is close to many major bus routes, and within walking distance to ferries and trains.
The lower four levels are available for lease now, while the top two levels will be available from December.
