Dear Andrew and Chris

Dunedin Heritage Awards Urban Heroes – Barton’s Building, Princes Street
I write to thank you for the work you have undertaken on your building over the last year or so which we highlighted at the Dunedin Heritage Re-use Awards.
The restoration and re-use of the city’s heritage buildings is important for Dunedin’s future. The Council understands that this can be a costly and difficult process for owners and we thank you for the time, energy, effort and attention to detail you have put into your project. The impressive exterior transformation of the building has had a hugely positive impact on the area around it and I hope that other owners in the area will emulate your efforts in order to support the enhancement of the central city and the city’s reputation as the heritage capital of New Zealand.
Thank you again for your contribution to the protection of the city’s heritage.

Yours sincerely
David Benson-Pope

Chair | Dunedin Heritage Fund
