Our Place Opens This Month!

Our Place Tauranga


As the Tauranga City Council administration buildings fall, a new opportunity arises. An opportunity to create a beating heart in the space where the building once stood. An opportunity to create a place that acknowledge's history whilst looking to the future by creating a safe, vibrant and energetic space.

This temporary yet dynamic city centre project, called 'Our Place' is focused on supporting and engaging the community, so as well as providing space for local businesses, offering affordable rents to social enterprises and start-ups, the event spaces and public areas will also be available for hire for community events like meetings, fundraisers and workshops.

The scheduled opening for Our Place is March this year.


We can’t wait to discover the food, artisans, workshops and events at Our Place on Willow Street in Downtown Tauranga!

Here’s a taste of some of the amazing retailers and projects to expect…

  • High Tide. The folk from Rising Tide are setting up an on-site micro-brewery and will include food vendors!
  • Morepork BBQ. Tender smoked meats and other American favourites
  • Paddington Store. A chic gift and design store offering a range of Kiwi brands
  • Wilder. Nourishing lunches including favourites like Wild One in the Mount
  • Community Garden. Facilitated by Good Neighbor charity, it will be used to teach locals how to grow healthy food. Look out for the workshop programme!
  • Bayley's Pop-up Kitchen. Open to an array of uses, from charity groups to local chefs running pop-up restaurants in the communal dining area
