Goodman (NZ) Ltd has announced that Auckland Transport will lease the distinctive Auckland CBD office building on the corner of Fanshawe and Halsey Streets in the Wynyard precinct in which Vodafone is the key tenant.
The 14,085sq m building, renamed VXV20 and noted for its sweeping, curved glass facade, is on the opposite corner from the Fonterra Centre and will be extensively refurbished prior to the commencement of the new nine year lease to Auckland Transport in November next year.
John Dakin, chief executive officer of Goodman (NZ) Ltd describes VXV20 as "an iconic building in a superb location".
"We will be upgrading the office areas and building services to provide Auckland Transport with a modern and efficient work environment for its 1600 staff," Dakin says.
"Securing a new customer commitment, seven months ahead of the expiry of the Vodafone tenancy is a great result for our business."
The property is owned within the Wynyard Precinct joint venture between Goodman Property Trust and GIC, the sovereign wealth fund of Singapore.
