Tarawera & Te Ngae Roads Corner Development

The corner of Tarawera and Te Ngae Roads in Rotorua has been home to a Frankenstein building that started life as a service station, then a car yard and then a whole swag of struggling businesses.  When Tony Bradley of TPB Properties acquired the property in 2017 DCA already had a vision for the master plan.  Do it once and do it well – fundamental to DCA’s sustainability approach, means designing effective spaces for now and for the future.  Pivotal to the idea, was a bar/café that was mountain biker friendly.  Situated on the doorstep of the Whakarewarewa Forest trail network, there was an audience to be captured.  Local businessman, Andy Allan, understood the vision and jumped at the chance to establish the edgy beer brand “Good George” on the site. Work is well underway and will be open in time for the summer holiday period.  What better way to end your mountain bike outing with mates, than reliving the tails on the trails over a nice cold beer.  The development is completed with Anytime Fitness Gym taking the remainder space after expanding from their current premises.
