Lincoln House to be restored

Emily O'Connell

A quake-damaged building, which has been empty since the 2011 earthquakes, will retain its vibe by keeping some of its graffiti.

Imperial Holdings have bought Lincoln House on Lichfield St between Manchester and Colombo streets.

Project Manager Caleb Ballin said the graffiti would be used as floorboards in the repairs.

Ballin said the restorations would be finished by November.
