NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 17/11/2016

Parts of Courtenay Place in Wellington's CBD have been evacuated due to concerns about structural damage.

Emergency services are at a car park on Tory Street, between Wakefield St and Courtenay Place, with concerns about a building with issues of "structural stability".

Wellington Mayor Justin Lester said the Reading car park was one of the buildings they had concerns about serious structural damage, in a conference earlier on Thursday afternoon.

Wellington City Council tweeted "Courtenay Central and surrounding buildings are being evacuated following a structural engineer assessment".
