Our Place Tauranga is a strategic, pre-vitalisation project for the Tauranga CBD aimed at providing a coordinated offering of events and activations to enhance the Heart of the City programme. Its purpose is also to provide opportunities for the community and visitors to the region to utilise and enjoy the space, to take an amazing central location and provide a scalable intervention for the city and catalyse a long-term change.
Built out of 37 shipping containers ranging from 20ft kiosks and 20ft side-opening containers, the complex offers a diverse range of modular spaces to give businesses and ideas a space of their own – from street food kiosks to fashion boutiques, homeware stores, workshops and office spaces. The complex is also an event destination with a 36m2 stage and 240m2 common area.
Providing in-house sound engineering and PA equipment – Our Place can host a broad range of events from workshops to festivals and music events. We offer a low risk and economical opportunity for businesses – and are dedicated to supporting the community in creating a symbiotic relationship between the activities and businesses programmed.
