An amazing opportunity to secure a Victorian Heritage 1 listed building and associated bare land in the heart of the Christchurch CBD. The building has an Importance Level of IL2 and an associated National Building Standard at a minimum of 70% NBS (National Building Standard ). The sites are zoned Central City Business and sits approximately 200 metres from the New Christchurch Convention Centre (currently under construction) on Cathedral Square and the new library.
The Magistrates building is 1142sqm in size over two floors on a land parcel of 4,086sqm and allows for a building height of up to 28 metres and a street frontage to Armagh street of 79.5 metres. The building also commands an outlook/frontage to the Avon river opposite Victoria Park. The first part of the Magistrates Court building was constructed in 1880-1881 on land which has been owned by the Crown since 1863. The building was designed by Benjamin Woolfield Mountford, one of the foremost architects in Victorian New Zealand. This is the oldest purpose-built court building in Christchurch. The building and associated land can be sold as one, or individually, or leasing options are also available. The Magistrates Court building is a valued part of the Christchurch city landscape. It has been the Family Court building for quite some time now and its unique Victorian structure makes it suitable for offices, a hospitality precinct or an international hotel chain looking to capitalise on the location and proximity to Cathedral Square and new Christchurch Convention Centre.
