​Spark unveils new Christchurch CBD office

2019 targeted as telco reveals plans to move back to the city centre.

Spark has announced plans to return to the heart of Christchurch’s CBD, through the opening of a new high-profile office to be built in Cathedral Square.

With more than 650 staff spread across four different locations, the telco recently signed a contract as anchor tenant in a facility which will allow the company to move most of its operations back into the city centre.

“Our people have been spread across four different locations for the last few years while we’ve worked through the best possible long-term solution,” Spark managing director, Simon Moutter, said.

“We are now ready to honour a commitment we made to get back into the CBD when the timing was right to move.”

Moutter said the purpose-built, four-level facility at 2 Cathedral Square will allow Spark to eventually operate a two-site strategy in Christchurch and relocate around 450 of its people into the new site in 2019.

The new building is close to Spark’s main Christchurch location pre-earthquake in Hereford Street, with one of the buildings still housing the telco’s main communications exchange for the area, but is no longer suitable for office accommodation, while a neighbouring company building has been demolished.

“This new building will enable the growth and development of our entire South Island business, and put us in the heart of the city in a central location that’s great for our people and great for the city,” Moutter added.

“Spark has a long history in Christchurch, and we are excited to play our part in the CBD regeneration.”

Moutter said the 5085sqm building will be fully occupied by Spark except for a small number of retail and hospitality leases.
