Built in 1935, 255 Cuba Street is a fine example of the work of architectural firm Dawson and King. Comprised of four apartments and three retail units, the building was designed in an Art Deco style with the standout features being the wrought iron balconies and parapet. 

The Heritage EQUIP upgrade works grant will go towards installing brace framing on new foundations to span all floors, along with installing steel corner posts to the ground and first floors.

Located within the Cuba Street Historic Area, 255 Cuba Street is a Heritage New Zealand listed Category 2 building.
