Listed landlord Goodman Property Trust has provided the first glimpse of Fonterra's new headquarters and announced it will own the building in Auckland's Viaduct area.
Keith Smith, chairman of the trust's manager, said Goodman would take control of the 16,000sq m campus-style office to be built soon.
Images showed a large campus-style area and buildings arranged around a central green zone.
The landmark building will be developed by Goodman Group and Fletcher Building on a leasehold site.
"Through its relationship with Goodman Group, Goodman Property Trust has the exclusive opportunity to own one of Auckland's most significant new office developments. We're extremely pleased to be building a relationship with Fonterra, one of the world's leading dairy companies, as they transition to new business premises in the Wynyard Quarter," Smith announced.
The HQ will rise on Fanshawe Street, opposite Victoria Park and between the trust-owned Air New Zealand building and Viaduct Corporate Centre.
The seven level property will feature large flexible floor plates and incorporate environmentally sustainable materials and energy efficient building systems that support new, technology driven, workplace practices, Smith said.
