Office space available for short- or long-term lease in one of Christchurch's best-placed heritage buildings. The Registry building, finished in 1916, is a Gothic Revival stone building on the corner of Worcester Boulevard and Montreal Street, directly opposite Christchurch Art Gallery and prominently located at the edge of The Arts Centre's campus.

111 sqm of office space across three rooms are available for lease immediately, on the first floor of the Registry building. One large office space with beautiful heritage features (stone fireplace, vaulted native-timber ceiling), opens onto a second, smaller office with bay window looking down Worcester Boulevard towards Canterbury Museum. A third, smaller office or meeting room overlooks Christchurch Art Gallery with views down the Boulevard towards the Cathedral. Whilst best suited as office space, the Registry building has previously housed retail outlets too.

$4,700 per month + GST, inclusive of OPEX. Lease terms negotiable but minimum 12 months. As well as a prominent location in Christchurch's cultural precinct, other benefits include a place amongst The Arts Centre's community of tenants (including artisan retailers, boutique cinemas and hotels, artists' studios, creative agencies, hospitality outlets, etc.) and opportunities for joint marketing.
