hey, why is kiwiscrapers so strict on archiving threads? no one else seems to do it... it's actually a pain having to look back on what's been said and what images have been posted in the past.

I thought there was a general rule to keep threads to 500 posts so the database doesn't get clogged.

It has been a rule in the Kiwiscrapers forum that we have followed, Flyin and I understand that it was done everywhere else.

I also deleted the Elliot Tower renders from my servers quite awhile ago....

Ok all good

I just got confused cos there are so many Auckland forums in the 'Archive Section' compared to all other Oz sub-forums.

Today I received an email from Auckland City Council explaining that the Environment Court has not as yet arranged a date for a hearing for the Elliott Tower. I have been assured that I will be kept posted.

Often there is mediation through the Environment Court before an actual hearing (I've been involved in this for a MUCH MUCH smaller issue). Possibly Sky City and the developers might sort out their differences without going to the Environment Court. However, personally I think the developers of Elliott should just dig their heels in as I think Sky City has no basis to their appeal.

Indeed. I'm hopeful construction will get underway pretty much straight after the Env. Court drama has finished.

Looks good. I'll like it a lot more when it's surrounded by a few more tall ones to balance it out. It makes the skyline look very uneven from that angle.
