First NZ Capital Holdings Ltd (FNZC), which said a month ago it would revert to the name of founder Ron Jarden, has taken naming rights on 21 Queen St, currently called Zurich House.
That’s a corner of Precinct Properties NZ Ltd’s Commercial Bay redevelopment of the Downtown block in Auckland’s central business district, bounded by Albert, Customs, Quay & Queen Sts.
Investment & advisory firm FNZC said today 21 Queen St would become Jarden House on 1 January 2020, and the firm would take 2 floors there plus space in the new PwC Tower rising on the Albert-Customs corner.
FNZC has occupied level 39 of the ANZ Centre, up Albert St & also owned by Precinct, since 2008. At Commercial Bay, the Jarden offices will be in 1356m² on level 32 of the 39-storey PwC Tower, and 1143m² at 21 Queen St.
The firm will retain its Union St office in Freemans Bay, where several of the wealth team are based.
All Black wing Ron Jarden, who retired after the 1956 Springbok tour of New Zealand, was a stockbroker and founded the firm RA Jarden & Co in 1961. He died from a heart attack in 1977. FNZC has applied to the Companies Office to register numerous new companies with the Jarden name.
