        • The 2019 Wellington Civic Trust Awards celebration was held on the 10th December, with the results as follows: WELLINGTON CIVIC TRUST EXCELLENCE AWARD  Winner: Press Hall Development  Awarded to Cheops Holdings and McKee-Fehl Constructors Ltd  Judges’ Citation “This is an exciting project by a private developer which has carved out a laneway creating a new lively public space, used and enjoyed by all sectors of the community. In the words of the nominator “Press hall is a gamechanger that redefines how our cool little capital gathers, eats and laughs…”. It is an excellent example of a design solution that enhances the life of the street, and those who enjoy the redeveloped building.”  Runner up: G. McCarthy Trust Building Awarded to 60 Cuba Ltd and mc architecture studio ltd Judges’ Citation “We received several excellent nominations for earthquake strengthening of character buildings in Wellington city. We decided to especially acknowledge the redevelopment of the T. G. McCarthy Trust Building at 60 Cuba street, as an example of an almost derelict building being given a new lease of life and new uses which relate well to the shared public space of lower Cuba Street. May many others follow this example.” Highly Commended: Egmont, Eva and Leeds street Laneways   Awarded to Wellington City Council Judges’ Citation “We would like to acknowledge the commitment and interest of WCC to enhance these small public spaces and laneways in giving the pair of Egmont and Eva/Leeds streets a highly Commended award. This award particularly recognises the design, placement and quality of the street furniture in Egmont street. More quality investment in these lanes will add vibrancy, safety and street inhabitation to these inner-city passageways.” Highly Commended: Te Mara Apartments  Awarded to Wellington City Council and Novak + Middleton Architects  Judges’ Citation  “Te Mara also receives a Highly Commended Award. It is a fantastic example of a joint venture between a Territorial Authority and Government to produce a robust, flexible and high-quality innercity housing development – a modern example of Centennial Flats. As Te Mara means “the garden” we’d love to see the central area as a more living and productive garden for the inhabitants.” GRANT TILLY MEMORIAL AWARD  Winner: Public Trust Hall  Awarded to Cheops Holdings and McKee-Fehl Constructors Ltd  Judges’ Citation “This incredibly important heritage Building – Heritage NZ category 1 – was recently deemed impossible to strengthen and faced demolition. It has been beautifully and carefully restored and is a significant building both in its street context and the cultural memory of Wellingtonians. The creation of ground floor public space has increased the success of the restoration and is an asset to the city.”  Highly Commended: Centennial Flats Awarded to Kāinga Ora Homes and Communities and Architecture Cubed Ltd  Judges’ Citation “The complete restoration of this housing complex, including retention of the central community spaces, has embraced the people living there. The project, originally designed by the Ministry of Works under Gordon Wilson, and with a Heritage NZ category 1 listing, is an excellent example of 1940’s public housing, done well.” PEOPLES’ CHOICE AWARD 2019 Winner: The Pavilion, Bridging and Decking on the Wellington Waterfront  Awarded to Wellington Waterfront and the Isthmus Group Our congratulations to the winners, and thanks to all who participated.

We work to: encourage public participation in decisions that affect our city ensure good planning and design to address the challenges of the future preserve the best of the old, but encourage new development which will enhance our city protect and enhance the unique character and the many natural features of the city, including the skyline, the town belt and the harbour encourage green space and environmentally conscious development develop a pedestrian- and cycle-friendly environment safeguard the waterfront as a public amenity support transport options that enhance the city and health What we do The Trust exists to give Wellingtonians the opportunity to have a say in their city’s future. Every two years the Trust organizes a full-day seminar, inviting members and the public to hear broad-ranging and expert views on issues critical to the city’s development. It then provides planners and decision-makers with guidance on what the people of Wellington want. The Trust’s Bienniel Awards recognize outstanding urban projects. The Trust looks at proposed developments for the city and where there are concerns it makes submissions to Council. How we do it Over many years the Trust has earned the respect of the Wellington City Council and government groups.  It has the ability to get things done by bringing together those who seek action and those who have the authority to act. The Wellington Civic Trust is made up of both individual and business members — planners, architects, engineers and citizens. It has achieved much over the years by seeking answers, making submissions and making appeals on decisions.
