Shed 13 - Northern end
This building has the rope and whim hoisting apparatus seen in other pics under this tag. The building has an NZHPT (Historic Places Trust) Category 1 listing and it is really the most visually attractive and significant of the surviving WHB buildings on Wellington's waterfront. It is now (2012) the HQ for MOJO'S a coffee importing and cafe franchising business and under the guidance (one must presume) of Lambton Harbour Management and The Trust, Mojo's has converted the building by erecting another modern building inside it - freestanding and very elegant, without compromising the old building in any way. An example to other developers and heritage advocates of a good way to prosecute adaptive reuse.
The two whims that drive the hoisting system are on the walls just beside the big cart-dock doors effectively running up the back of the pillars with the bollards at the base.
