Saatchi & Saatchi will vacate the premises its held for 25 years on Wellington's Courtenay Place in August, in favour of the chic new Clyde Quay Wharf. 

The $150 million Clyde Quay Wharf is billed as a street on the water and will house 76 lluxury apartments, businesses, full broadband infrastructure, retail and a restaurant.

The complex replaces the former overseas terminal and is based on energy-efficient design.

CEO Nicky Bell says the space reflects the evolution of agency and its new team. It's recently made a number of new hires, including Isobell Kerr-Newell as communications director, Susie Darling as a senior account director working on Toyota, Lucky Sparks as a senior account manager and producer Amy Hansen.

Damian Ferigo has also come on board as chief operating officer and Lorraine Guerin as digital production director. Business director Wendy Schrijvers describes the new environment as fresh an modern.

"[It] will be an incredible creative space for our people and clients," she says.

Saatchi & Saatchi's sister agency within Publicis, Starcom, will join the company in the new premises.
