Daily News Building 1964 (Puke Ariki collection)

This building on the corner of Currie and Powderham Streets was built in 1964 for Taranaki Newspapers Limited. The two daily newspapers (Taranaki Herald and Daily News) had just merged and new premises were needed for the Daily News. 

The old Sargoods warehouse on the corner was demolished in August 1964 and work began on the new building. The contractors were Riddick Bros. & Still for an estimated cost of £176,000. 

In the mid-1980s the neighbouring Currie Street buildings were demolished and this building was enlarged to include staff from the Taranaki Herald - see linked topic.
