Part of the Queen’s Wharf development, the TSB Bank Arena is now managed by the Positively Wellington Venues.
The idea behind the wharf development was for a significant public space with the retention and enhancement of historical maritime character. Under the Lambton Harbour design guide existing wharf buildings are to provide precedents for new developments with their simple rectangular plans and use of traditional robust materials.event01.jpg

The Centre, designed by Craig, Craig and Moller was completed in 1995. It evokes the style of surrounding wharf buildings, and is of robust steel and concrete construction, orientated in line with other wharf buildings.
However it is of a considerably larger scale and looks somewhat out of place next to its smaller neighbours and as a result has been the cause of considerable public controversy.

It provides a large indoor venue for both concerts and sporting events within the centre of the city.
