Progress Update - St James Church, Mt Eden

Renovating and reinventing the striking church in Esplanade Rd, Mt Eden, is an exciting and rewarding project. As all passers-by could see, this building was in desperate need of a major refurbishment to ensure its survival and bring it up to modern standards.



The 123-year-old building is being painstakingly restored, with the addition of extensive seismic strengthening, inserting four Industrial style apartments inside.

It was important to preserve the unique features such as stained-glass windows, decorative bracing and the Kauri timber originally used inside: The wide Kauri boards lining the ceiling will become beautiful feature floorboards.
