These include a former supermarket converted to provide workshop/design studio and offices, a modern three-level office building with ground-floor retail, a free-standing former restaurant which is now council offices and the recently completed four-level Quest apartment building with secure undercroft parking.
229 Dairy Flat Highway comprises 1.04 hectares, has lettable space of over 6,700 square metres and 156 car parks on-site, and was owned by NZX-listed PFI.
