The Arts Centre is seeking proposals from interested parties for the tenancies located within the Boys’ High building.

Standing at the gateway to the Arts Centre on Worcester Boulevard, and adjacent to Market Square, this two-level building offers a broad variety of tenancy options. See the image gallery of available spaces and surrounding heritage features.

Join the community

Boy’s High will feature a carefully curated, complementary mix of boutique retail and business – designed to attract repeat local customers, surrounding workers and tourists.

Nestled amongst key city attractions, it’s within convenient walking distance to many of the new buildings and anchor projects currently underway in Christchurch’s regenerating city centre.

Beauty, form and function

With the restoration of Boys’ High, the Arts Centre offers a one-of-a-kind, high-quality character building.

With stunning heritage features, modern, bright and open spaces, flexible fit-out options and state-of-the-art infrastructure, you’ll find a space unlike anything else in the city.

Escape from the bustle

Step out of your tenancy straight into the beautiful North and South quads, Market Square, Gymnasium Canopy and street-facing terraces.

These shared spaces are at the heart of the Arts Centre community, allowing you to mingle with other creative professionals, artists, performers and visitors.

Eat, drink and dine

Enjoy an array of locally owned and operated artisan food and beverage options onsite – Bunsen cafe, Zen Sushi and Dumplings, and the Curator’s Deli.

We’ve got you covered, day and night, whether it be a business breakfast, casual lunch, coffee or onsite catering.

Embrace the buzz

The Arts Centre doesn’t just offer beautiful buildings. It’s a destination that hosts the most exciting events on the Christchurch calendar including The World Buskers Festival, outdoor cinema, SCAPE Public Art exhibitions, the Christchurch Arts Festival and other one-off concerts.

Why watch from afar when you and your business can be nestled right in the heart of the action.
