C.C.Ward (47 Currie Street) 

A permit for this two-storey building was issued on 11 March 1925. It was connected to the Devon Street building and greatly increased C.C.Ward's retail space. (see linked topic).

It was designed by Messenger, Griffiths & Taylor and the contractor was Julian & Sons. The estimated cost was £2,250.

On 11 July 2017 the building was sealed off by the New Plymouth District Council after inspections revealed "gravity column damage". The laneway next to the building has been cordoned off and the owners now have 20 working days to supply a remedial plan. This timeframe can be extended if needed.

(Both this building and the one on Devon Street East are registered as a category 2 historic place with Heritage New Zealand)
