Council is offering a unique opportunity for a successful developer or consortium that shares its vision for the central city’s Performing Arts Precinct (PAP), to Design, Build, Own and Operate in perpetuity, a modern, highly attractive and suitably scaled parking building to serve the city’s new cultural heart. Council will make the land available to the successful respondent on a long term lease, intended to exceed the building’s reasonable expected design life. Alternatively, and importantly subject to formal Council approval as part of any subsequent Agreement, respondents may make proposals for the purchase of the parking building land parcel from Council to enable full ownership of both the facility and its land by the respondent in perpetuity. Land has been set aside within the PAP for this building, enabling it to be located facing Gloucester Street, to the immediate west of the Isaac Theatre Royal and to the east of the planned new Court Theatre (to be located on the corner of Colombo and Gloucester Streets).

The parking building must be suitably scaled, wholly sympathetic to and fully integrated with the nearby environment – notably the existing Isaac Theatre Royal, Central Library (Tūranga) and the new Convention Centre, Te Pae. Equally importantly, Council is seeking for it to integrate with emerging concept designs for the new Court Theatre to its west and the Performing Arts Precinct public realm to its west and north. At ground floor level, the design should lend itself to suitable occupation by activities appropriate to a performing arts precinct, and especially help to activate the planned central courtyard / public realm space to its immediate north. Respondents will be required to commit to the building’s substantive completion by 1 November 2022.

Interactive Q&A sessions are available as part of this opportunity with requests to be made by 5pm Wednesday 18th November to the RFP contact person– sessions will be a maximum of 1 hour and held at Civic Offices, 53 Hereford Street, Christchurch between Monday 23 November – Thursday 26 November.
