Invercargill Central Limited today (Thursday 12th) released updated computer renders of the development showing the detail of the facades on Esk and Tay Streets.

Careful consideration has been given to design a contemporary, functional centre that will provide a vibrant and engaging customer experience, while remaining in scale with the existing buildings of the Invercargill Central Business District (CBD).

Three heritage building facades will be preserved and worked into the new development, including that of the former Southland Times building, Coxhead’s Building and the Cambridge Arcade North Entrance, all on Esk Street. The ILT Kelvin Hotel, Reading Cinemas and the New South Wales Bank building do not form part of this development.

This inner city redevelopment will revitalise the centre of Invercargill and touch all corners of the consumer experience. From gourmet eateries to plentiful parking, the block has something to offer everyone.

“The project to transform the centre of Invercargill is now underway. This is the start of great things for our city and is the result of many years of effort from various parties. We look forward with excitement to the outcome this project will bring,” Invercargill Central Limited director Scott O’Donnell says.
