Office space on both levels of the revived Wong Doo building (ex-Canvas City, pictured) at the corner of Hobson & Cook Sts was among 3 leases Bayleys agent signed this month. The other 2 were in the Wairau Valley on the North Shore.
The Hobson St building was saved from imminent demolition in 2005 when Auckland City Council gave it a category B heritage scheduling. That also resulted in a change to the design of the Fiore apartment building, eventually completed as 2 structures, with the old corner building incorporated beneath the second apartment building.
