A $290 million (New Zealand dollars, roughly $191 US dollars) national facility will be built for Archives New Zealand in Wellington to house the country’s rapidly-growing archival collections.

Details of the state-of-the-art building will be announced by Internal Affairs Minister Jan Tinetti​ and Taranaki Whānui Te Āti Awa representatives at the building site, opposite the National Library on Aitken St.

The location formerly held Defence House, which was demolished after the 7.8-magnitude Kaikōura earthquake of 2016.
