Tenants sought for new J'ville offices
Autostop Group is looking for tenants for a proposed new development in Johnsonville.
Resource consent has been obtained for the multi-level Loft development next to the company's premises in Disraeli St.
The Geoff Fletcher Architects-designed building has a focus on energy efficiency with a four-star green rating.
Autostop property manager Mark Kirk-Burnnand said building would start when they got tenant commitment for the 1300 square metres of office space.
"As long-term property holders in Johnsonville, we are focused on constructing a quality building to support our own proven business operation and to fill a very real gap in Johnsonville's commercial environment," said Kirk-Burnnand.
A new Autostop workshop would be on the ground floor.
The company would also take some office space above, while the remaining open plan office space was available for lease.
Bayleys agent Fraser Press said it could suit Government departments looking for a satellite site away from the CBD.
"Energy savings and low running costs, provision of on-site car parking along with competitive rental rates and prominent signage potential are fuelling inquiry from interested parties."
Autostop estimates an eight or ninemonth construction timeframe from commencement.
Press said the proposed $300 million redevelopment of the Johnsonville Mall could benefit the area's potential for office development.
