Britomart is a large-scale urban renewal project at the heart of Auckland’s central city, founded originally on a public-private partnership between Cooper and Company and Auckland City Council but now exclusively owned and managed by Cooper and Company interests.
Cooper and Company has developed the 15-acre waterfront complex of heritage buildings and new-build sites into a mixed-use precinct of food and beverage businesses, boutiques, offices and services, with 120 businesses now located there, 18 of which are restaurants and bars.
The precinct is the work place for approximately 5000 people per day, many of whom take advantage of the public transport hub located in and near Britomart. The development includes the renovation of 18 historic buildings, as well as the construction of several state of-the-art, environmentally friendly new buildings.
Britomart is the largest heritage restoration project ever undertaken in New Zealand. As the long-term owner and manager of the precinct, Cooper and Company has guided the development to ensure that it has the right mix of elements, the heritage and special character are respected, and it integrates gracefully into its surroundings.
A first for New Zealand, Britomart is a diverse, energetic and vibrant 24/7 urban community on a par with those of other great world cities. A first for New Zealand, Britomart is a diverse, energetic and vibrant 24/7 urban community on a par with those of other great world cities.
