One of the last vacant industrial sites in Havelock North, 6 Martin Place was acquired by TUMU in late 2020 with the specific intention of developing a new TUMU Building Supplies Store.

Construction commenced in September 2021 including a 2,500sqm warehouse/bulk store with a 150sqm mezzanine, a 600sqm showroom and 460sqm of office and staff amenity areas. In addition to main building the development included a 3,500sqm yard area, storage canopies and 63 car parks for staff and customers.

TUMU partnered with TimberSpan, Strata Group and Potius Building Systems to develop an innovative hybrid design utilising a mixture of steel and sustainable Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) components within the structure.

Successfully completed in September 2022, the property has been retained within the TUMU Property investment portfolio.

TUMU co-owns the neighbouring 5,400sqm at 2 Martin Place – the last piece of vacant commercial/industrial land in Havelock North. Plans for developing this piece of land are currently in progress.
