Māori Hall refurbishment

A project is underway to refurbish the heritage 1908 Māori Hall on 5 Edinburgh St, Auckland Central (just off K Rd) and activate this historic space for community events, to support youth development, the arts, creativity and wellbeing.

The Māori Hall has lain derelict since 2008, when it was last used for the artist Michael Parekowhai‘s “Jim McMurtry” installation.

The building needs a seismic retrofit to code. Funds are sought to help pay for the last phase of heritage architecture, engineering design, surveying, resource consents and the final costings report.
