With this iconic building being a historic landmark for Tauranga City the exterior will be largely retained in the remodeling process carried out by Gartshore. The entire interior, complete with foundations and structure will undergo a complete makeover to become a bespoke Bar and Restaurant on the ground floor with a boutique hotel occupying the first floor.
Gartshore commenced work in early 2018, where we removed the majority of the interior walls on both levels also removing the floor and upgrading the existing foundations. Despite a full remodel in the late 90’s additional structural work is now in progress to stabilize the building and bring it up to current code. Once this initial process is complete, the next stage of transformation into the new Bar, Restaurant and Hotel will begin.
The building has been gutted and ready for a fresh interior. New walls will be erected mainly upstairs to accommodate the new 10 room hotel. The bottom floor will be for the most part, open plan. A state of the art kitchen will combine with a funky bar area giving the patrons a dining and entertainment experience. External landscaping will begin later in the year where open paved areas combined with glazed canopies to provide alfresco dining overlooking the harbor. Looking to be finished in the later 2018, Gartshore is off to a positive start with so much more to come.
