A central Wellington street is being closed to allow the demolition of a quake-damaged building.

Johnston Street will be closed between Featherston Street and Customhouse Quay from tonight until Wednesday morning to make room for a 350-tonne mobile crane to install a tower crane, Wellington City Council says.

The crane will be used to demolish quake-damaged BP House and build a new $80 million office block in its place.
