There were about 30 police officers at the scene, opposite the Wellington Central Police Station. Eight fire engines were called in. People donned orange hazard suits and entered the apartments.
The occupants of the apartment and several police will undergo decontamination by the Fire Service.
To do this, Harris St was closed to all traffic. One lane was also closed on Victoria St between Willeston and Mercer streets.
Residents were allowed back in to their apartments about 8.30am.
The award-winning 95-apartment Chews Lane Apartments block - which includes six penthouses - opened in July 2009.
In 2010, the apartment development was awarded excellence in the natural habitats landscapes urban land developments category of the Property Council Rider Levett Bucknall property industry awards.
Judges said the apartments set a new benchmark for inner-city living. The layout was maximised to allow views over the city and the harbour.
