History of the Building
Built in 1925, the building is an example of the ‘Chicago architectural style’ which was popular during the inter war period. The use of brick, as opposed to reinforced concrete, distinguishes it from other tall Chicago style buildings.
The building has historical value as it is associated with the Jones Estate which was the legacy of Thomas Jones (1845-1918), a partner in the building firm Palliser and Jones and former director of the Silverstream Brick Company.
The building’s use as a tyre depot is also associated with the historical growth of Wellington’s car manufacturing industry. The building has retained a significant amount of its exterior fabric and therefore it has authenticity.
