Description

Queens Arcade was originally constructed as three separate buildings with two main street frontages. The “south arcade” to Queen Street was originally two separate buildings erected in the early 1900’s with a brick-separating wall.

The Queens Arcade building at34 – 40 Queen Streetwas built by Fletcher Construction Ltd to the design of architects Blomfield & Hunt and completed in 1929. Completion of the five level office building at the Customs Street-frontage completed the present link through the arcade in the same year.

The New Zealand Building Record edition of July 21st 1928 described the planned façade to Queen Street as “symbolic of the Georgian period.” Design details were said to include “a first level promenade with ornamental bronze ballustrading and the latest in artistic finishes.” “White marble facades will be relieved at regular intervals with crested pillars.”

In November 1929 the amalgamation of the Queen Street and Customs Street facing properties and the removal of the boundary walls at ground and first floor level created the “L shaped” arcade linking both Queen and Customs Street.

The New Zealand Building Record edition of Friday 22 November 1929 reported the completion of the project and noted the “beautifully polished shop fronts of Whangarei marble, use of fine woods and tastefully set out displays by the tenants of the shops give the whole arcade a very distinctive tone and smart appearance.
