Story: Inner-city living

Office conversion

Office conversion

In the early 1990s the Wellington City Council supported moves to boost inner-city living. When the Wellington Harbour Board was dissolved in 1989, the council agreed to allow the conversion of the board's former offices into apartments. In this 1993 view, the roof of the Harbour Board building is being reconfigured to provide more space. The project was a great success, increasing the demand for apartments.
