Wellington has a reputation as New Zealand’s cultural and events capital, playing host to numerous live music and other performances.
A market opportunity exists for the development of a 10,000 - 12,000 seat indoor venue, to broaden the range of performances the city can attract and facilitate.
Wellington City Council is working on an indoor arena project in the central city, with easy access to transport and entertainment hubs.
The purpose built facility would increase both event-driven tourism and the quality of life for residents.
The Wellington City Council is seeking an investment partner in the development, and/or operation of the new arena facility. The Council will be a key investor, however a public/private partnership will be essential to the project.
The project is at an early stage, with several centrally located sites identified and under consideration.
