Level one, Boys’ High building  


Do not miss this rare opportunity to join the Arts Centre – one of New Zealand’s most iconic and beautiful cluster of heritage buildings – by claiming this final retail tenancy in our Boys’ High building.

Fronting onto the bustling Worcester Boulevard, Boy’s High features a carefully curated, complementary mix of boutique, independent, retailers. Each operator has been hand-selected for their ingenuity and personality in order to attract repeat local customers, surrounding workers and visitors.

Our existing tenants include Rollickin Gelato, Pepa Stationary, Frances Nation, Absolution tattoo and piercing, Rekindle, Shopology, Fudge Cottage, Soul Jewellery and i-SITE – could you be next?

The space consists of 55m2 of level one space, offering flexibility in terms of fit-out options. It will be presented in base build condition. The space is unique and designed to encourage customer flow, with interconnecting doors to neighbouring tenancies – a natural skin care retailer, and fashion retailer. Looking out over Worcester Boulevard, this light and bright space, with feature windows, high ceilings and central heating is available now.

Rental by negotiation – call or email to discuss further.

We are also interested in short-term, or ‘pop-up’ options, on flexible terms, so if this sounds like you, or you have an idea you’ve been wanting to test, let us know – – we would love to hear from you!

Why watch from afar when you can be nestled right in the heart of the action?
