About this Project

The Ernst & Young Building is a large scale 5 star Green Star rated office development in the Britomart Precinct, downtown Auckland. It was designed in partnership with Australian architects Johnson Pilton Walker, with Peddle Thorp developing the design and detailing, and carrying the project through construction.

Built directly over the Britomart Rail Station, the building includes a mix of retail at ground level with large floor-plate office levels above. Anchor tenants are Westpac, Ernst & Young, and Southern Cross.

Peddle Thorp also worked on the adjacent Westpac Charter House building which was completed in November 2008.
