Shortland Flats turning 100

The current owners and curators of Shortland Flats are working on a range of celebrations to mark the occasion of 100 years of providing accommodation services to people living in Auckland’s city centre. In particular, they are looking to connect with former residents, gathering some of the anecdotal stories and experience of living in Shortland Flats over the years.

Shortland Flats Ltd was incorporated on 17 December 1922. With a Category 2 listing, this concrete building of 24 flats and a caretaker unit has retained an open rooftop, an old lift complete with scissor door, a beautiful lobby and the air of a place of permanence.
