68 Nelson St - Building Update


Following it’s closure in January 2014, Youthtown communicated, in September 2014, that it wasn’t financially viable to return to it’s original site at 68 Nelson St and the building was being decontaminated for lead, prior to demolition.

Demolition is now due to start the week of 5th January 2016 and the project is expected to take a couple of months.

Below is the contact details of the Project Engineer, in case you have any concerns during this time.

Youthtown has sadly fare-welled the building with a blessing and continues to progress well with their strategy to be sustainable by expanding into key communities across NZ, mostly based in schools. This ensures that all the Youthtown programmes are much more assessable to young people everywhere, empowering more young New Zealanders, than ever, to be the best they can be.
