Yep. I stayed at Sky City.
I didnt notice the development accross the road....too drunk at night and too hungover and busy during the day.

I might have read a while back that they were planning a new convention/ exibition centre there. Could that be related?

Yes.
The entrance to the lifts is underground.
They offered me a free wire jump when I was there. Alas prior arrangements.

Nice one Tom.
Nothing like a good zoom to get a great effect.

When I lived in Akl the BNZ was the tallest. You used to pay to go to the observation deck on the 27th floor.
Seemed like big bikkies then.
From the looks of things the BNZ just became 35+ floors.

re

Yeah you can still go up, and it only costs $2! The observation deck is on the 28th floor. I do it from time to time, as you will see in my pictures in this thread, and on my video in this thread. It's cool. I can't believe I didn't know about it for years. Nobody else goes up there because they don't know about it and go up the sky tower. I bet it was so awesome when it was finished. Auckand's first over 100 metres, and I bet the octagonal form was proclaimed in the Herald as an architectural masterpiece. In fact, there's a poster on my geo class wall of a photo taken when the BNZ was Auckland's Tallest.

On a completely different note. . .

Here's a pic of the Metropolis penthouse:

I think Metropolis is becoming my favourite Auckland tower,I just love the top of it and how it varies in colour depending on angle,weather and time of day.I wonder what is actually inside that thing?

Gets my vote. Timeless design unlike some of those 70s and 80s monsters.
The Sky Tower is also timeless, in a spacey way.
