Over the past five years Kaiwharawhara has become well known as Wellington’s sales / trade and showroom base for a number of well known Wellington businesses. The area has been transferred from bulk warehouse and distribution to an environment of showroom tenants such as Backhouse, Living Room, Cudby + Meade and international tenants such as Spotlight, BMW and The Body Shop all moving to this popular location.
Kaiwharawhara is located at the base of the western hills opposite the Interisland Ferry passenger terminal and only five minutes from Wellington’s central CBD. For this reason this location appeals to users who need space and carparking but do not have to be located in Wellington’s CBD.
Kaiwharawhara Road is the main arterial road servicing the northern suburbs of Crofton Downs, Ngaio and Khandallah.
