Aotea Centre

​About the project

The Aotea Centre is undergoing its first major refurbishment in 28 years in order to give the iconic destination a fresh new look.

This will pave the way for Aotea Studios, a performing arts expansion, to be constructed in the next few years.

The designs will be released in 2019.

What's involved

The first phase of this redevelopment is to refurbish the outside of the centre, which will give the building a distinctive new look. This will be followed by a refresh of the entrance and foyer space, and a new glass ticketing office.

The Aotea Centre will be closed during construction.


Construction began in October 2018.

The centre will be reopened from March 2019.
