With a focus on complementing the existing space, an innovative concept has been unveiled for Invercargill’s Wachner Place.

ILT chief executive Chris Ramsay said the proposed container bar development was designed to create an inclusive environment for the community.

“The vision has continued to evolve and we’re really happy with where it’s landed,” he said.

“It’s our intention to create a vibrant, family-friendly area while staying true to the community vibe of Wachner Place.”

Ilt Board member Sean Bellew said “It’s a new direction for the city, people should engage and embrace the concept before dismissing it, another upside is the Pop up bar could be used for alternative venues – hence a great asset for the city”

Ramsay said a shared food service would allow visitors to order from nearby food outlets like Subway, Hells Pizza, Tuatara Café or The Speights Ale House.

“People would be welcome to bring their own lunch as well,” he said.

“The idea is to ultimately create a space for all to enjoy … somewhere fun and funky where parents feel comfortable bringing their children.”

The possibility of integrating the giant chess set initially established by [email protected] students was being explored following discussions with the Invercargill City Council.

The container bar would feature barista-made coffee, craft beer and wine. In keeping with the modern yet understated ambiance sought, any live music would be acoustic.

Feasibility had been based on a closing time of 11pm.

“We look forward to activating a great central city location,” Ramsay said.
