Possibly one of Bates' most interesting designs, the NZI was demolished in 1972 to form a carpark. The site was then included in extensions to the Showplace which saw the present (2013) entrance, foyer and Alexander Room added as well as the premises for Kingsroy Electric. The TSB Showplace extension was opened on February 6 1999.

Between 1921 and 1930 the New Plymouth Savings Bank (now TSB Bank) operated from the lower floors.
