07 Aug Endeans Building – 2 Queen Street, Auckland
Originally built in 1902 and converted in 1993 into a mixture of residential and commercial apartments, Endeans, at No. 2 Queen Street, is in the heart of the Britomart Transport Centre and on the edge of the Waitemata Harbour opposite the Ferry Terminal.
A stunning atrium (complete with concierge) is flooded by light – two elevators (one a delightful Edwardian architectural gem) and immaculate common areas complete this prestigious building with a prestigious address.
It originally included nine shops and ninety offices. The original owner was John Endean, who made his money through goldmining in Australia, America and New Zealand before settling in Auckland where he ran the Waitemata Hotel and speculated in mining.
The entrance opens into a large atrium and a consierge is available from Monday to Friday. The location could not be more central to all the amenities the city has to offer.
