The PwC Centre is a high quality 4+green star rating office building with a large public open space and is a gateway to the heart of the city centre and home to around 300 professionals. It's positioned next to one of Hamilton's busiest shopping precincts, right next to Wintec with over 20,000 students, near Hamilton Girls High School and 200m from the transport centre.
Previously known as 'Citygate', the PwC Centre is the first new office building in the Hamilton CBD for several years, transforming a site that had been vacant for 17 years.
The five-storey, 5300sqm building has become an important component in the revitalisation of Hamilton city centre and serves as a gateway to the hear of the city centre. A strong design emphasis is on security through passive surveillance, activity and quality design. The ground floor retail outlets face out to the central plaza area - a flexible multi-use space that provides opportunities for small to medium-sized events, plus opportunities for corporate events, entertainment, dining and people watching.
On 22 August 2014, acknowledgement in the NZIOB and GIB Awards for excellence in the building professions was received by Craig McCulloch of Hawkins, our building partner, who was highly commended for project delivery.
In 2013 McConnell Property also received the Urban Design Architectural Merit category award from the Property Council's "We Are Waikato" awards.
