8 Commerce Street, Auckland Central
Achilles House stands proudly on the corner of Customs Street East and Commerce Street. In 2009, Achilles House was comprehensively refurbished and returned to her former glory as one of Auckland’s iconic landmarks. This refurbishment included the creation of 9 ground floor retail shops which front on to the busy pedestrian routes of Customs Street East and Commerce Street. Office tenants and visitors enter the building through a brand new luxurious lobby, including a new elevator, off Commerce Street which features marble flooring and feature lighting.
The upper levels have been fully refurbished into high stud character offices ranging from 29sqm to 369sqm. These offices boast polished Kauri floors, character skirting boards and Jarrah columns. The historic steel windows have been reinstated to an openable state to provide natural light and air flow. The timber battened ceilings have been fitted with cable trays to allow for flexibility of lighting, power and data.
Fully refurbished, Achilles House is occupied by a wide variety of high quality corporate, creative and legal tenants. The ground floor retail shops have been leased to a variety of exciting food and beverage outlets, providing tenants with a wide variety of dining options and breathing new life into the area.
