Precinct Properties — Bowen Campus Timelapse

The Bowen Campus redevelopment is set to transform Wellington’s government precinct.

Bowen Campus was acquired by Precinct in 2012 and encompasses a hectare of freehold land at the heart of the government precinct - adjacent to the Beehive and Parliament Buildings in Wellington.

Stage one of the redevelopment will transform Bowen State Building and Charles Fergusson Tower. These two 1960 and 1970’s office towers are being completely modernised to deliver highly efficient and cost effective workspaces for the public sector. Work on stage one is due for completion in 2019.

Precinct is initial planning stages for Bowen Stage two. This development will see two new buildings developed at 40 and 44 Bowen Street.

Precinct has worked with Tennent Brown architects and Dunning Thornton engineers to design these buildings which offer over 20,000sqm of NLA. The side core design creates exceptional efficiency and caters to modern ways of working. The buildings employ a number of features to minimise earthquake damage risk and support business continuity.

On completion, Bowen Campus is anticipated to house over 5,000 workers across the four buildings. A network of laneways connecting the buildings will provide retail, cafes and other amenities to enhance the experience of workers in the area.
