Lion NZ opens new head office

Lion New Zealand has opened the doors to its new head office in the 6 Green Star building at 136 Fanshawe Street.

Lion is one of five tenants at the address, which comprises of two towers with Meredith Connell and Fidelity Life taking naming rights.

The Pride, Lion’s brewery and beverage facility, is located in East Tamaki.

“This office move feels like a positive sign of things to come,” says Lion New Zealand Country Director, Craig Baldie.

“We had originally planned to move in during September last year, but Delta, as it did with so many things, put the kibosh on that. Now, we can open, albeit cautiously, and begin a new chapter in this vibrant area of the Auckland CBD.”

The 19,900m² central city building has received the internationally recognised 6 Green Star rating by the New Zealand Green Building Council, the highest available sustainability standard.

Features include an 105MWh photovoltaic panel array on the roof powering all he building’s common areas, reduced water consumption through use of harvested rainwater and low-flow water fixtures, fresh air inflow 50% higher than the NZ Building Code requirement, LED lighting throughout, and low emitting and sustainable materials were used wherever possible.

“Lion has ambitious sustainability aspirations,” says Baldie. “We define our core purpose in terms of the value we deliver to society; we exist to champion sociability and help people live well, and our new office truly embraces this.

The Local

“From having less impact on the environment, to enabling easier collaboration and sociability among our teams with creative spaces and technology, to the short stroll down to the beautiful Auckland Waterfront with so many great hospitality venues. We also have our own brand-spanking new bar, ‘The Local’ to showcase our products to our guests.

“Our new space supports our drive to be the most innovative and sustainable beverages company in Aotearoa with new ways of working, a range of collaborative spaces and the best technology alongside tributes to our long and proud legacy.”
