WELLINGTON: City Development (Part 1)

Covering all new developments/ and projects under construction in the Capital City of Wellington. Will update when needed.

Bolton Apartments, 20 levels.

Status- nearing completion externally


Museum Apartments, 10 levels

Status- under construction

Holiday Inn Hotel-Apartment Tower, 14 levels

Status- approved. I was in Wellington a week or so ago, and walked past the site, there was a large billboard up advertising the project, so all looks set to go.

There is a proposed 12 level mulit-use tower opposite the Duxton Hotel on Jervois Quay corner, subject to a resource consent.

There are 2 new Government Ministry buildings, one under construction for the Ministry for the Environment (10 levels), and one about to be built for the Ministry of Defence, 10 levels also.
Both are in the Thorndon area, adjacent to the CBD/Parliament.

Also, the Wellington City Council has recently taken in development proposals for a sizeable site in the CBD, known as "Chews Lane", which has variying height restrrictions, but can go up to 90m on one part. Nothing has yet been decided, but it will contain a mix of retail. apartments and office.

Yay! finally a Wellington thread. Those museum apartments look pretty classy. If only we had a forumer that lived down there so we could get some photos.

Lower Hutt

From what I hear there is also a bit of a mini skyline over Lower Hutt way as well which would be good to see

Well thats an urban myth my friend, no such skyline exists in Lower Hutt, just a couple of small office blocks, 6-7 levels.

Palmerston North, which is not far from wellington (less than 2 hrs), on the other hand does have a skyline, with 3 towers up to 12/13 levels, and a number of 7-10 level buildings, which are grouped around 'The Square', which reinforces the effect of a skyline.

Yes Palmerston North feels suprising urban driving through the city centre with it's little skyline and mini-Bank West tower.

And as for Dunedin,I think it's historic architecture probably more than makes up for a lack of bland modern office buildings

Cheers for posting that Tom, I saw it in the NBR yesterday too, but didn't have time to post it.
Great news though- More scrapers and density for the Capital!! And even better cause I can keep project updates as Wellington isn't very far from Palmy!
Design looks alright. More glass= class
