LARGE-SCALE URBAN RENEWAL AND HERITAGE RESTORATION PROJECT IN AUCKLAND'S CBD, NOW A VIBRANT SHOPPING, ENTERTAINMENT AND BUSINESS PRECINCT.
Britomart is a large-scale urban renewal project at the heart of Auckland’s CBD, founded on a public-private partnership between Cooper and Company and Auckland City Council.
Cooper and Company has developed the 15-acre waterfront complex of heritage buildings and new-build sites into a mixed-use precinct of restaurants, bars, boutiques, offices and services, with over 150 businesses now located in the precinct.
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; respects its heritage and special character; and 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.
