Property Description

You can’t think too big here. It’s the largest building in the Wairarapa and one of the largest in the southern North Island. BUT it will unquestionably offer the most competitive rental you may encounter anywhere in New Zealand. The owner will negotiate the deal that you can’t refuse. It’s all here – space / strength / power to run a city / stud height (see photos)/ a smart office unit / cafeteria/ gantry – and an abandoned rail siding that once delivered paper from the Kawerau mill. The tracks remain. Re-connect? Who knows.

Its greatest strength is its suitability for a huge range of activity – but the owner’s preference is for a single occupier. If you are seeking huge space – in a 100% NBS – terrific industrial with 10,000m² of secure outdoor yard area – nothing, absolutely nothing, compares to this. The location is a plus – the building sitting very prominently on Masterton’s heavy traffic by-pass route linking to SH2 but still no more than 4 minutes to the CBD and most housing areas of a growing Masterton. The town is renowned for some of the best private and state schooling in the country.

Originally built for the NZ Government Printing Office the floor has been engineered to take newsprint rolls up to six high. Seldom does any property ever have a heavier loading. Although built in the 1970s and a workhorse every day since – this building could still be here 100 years from now.

Vacant from February 2024 this property offers a business the opportunity to relocate or establish in the lifestyle region, the Wairarapa. Live here and you’re never more than 30 minutes from the venues, vineyards and veritable outdoors opportunities that so many New Zealand magazines regularly feature.
We are the only, solely commercial agency in the Wairarapa (also in Wellington & NewPlymouth) with unequalled local expertise, knowledge, professional, and trade connections to provide total support while you evaluate this site. Put us to the test!
