Changing Te Aro

Changing Te Aro

Since the 1990s central city areas like Te Aro have undergone considerable change. Many old buildings have been demolished, replaced by office and apartment buildings. In Garrett Street, only a few 19th-century houses, once typical of the area, remain. In 2007 the future of these dwellings was uncertain.
