That hospital looks like something from Chernobyl! Kind of a shame to see it go

11-14 June

I spent a great long weekend in the home town of Napier, lots of changes since the last visit which was only Xmas, Napier is a special place without doubt. I took way too many pics some of which I will share. I also spent some time in Hastings and was pleasantly surprised how beautiful the city is looking (refer Hastings Thread.

Copy that, supposed to be starting in November, complete by end of 2016

Old hospital is looking suitably apocalyptic, maybe I should get up there and grab a few shots

New platform to give panoramic view



Locals and visitors will have a spectacular new viewing spot to take in Hawke Bay and the Napier seafront by the end of the year.

It will be a large, raised viewing platform which will sit on the Marine Parade water's edge, reached by a walkway across the beach from the established walk and cycleway.

It is also the wrap-up stage of the major stormwater drain installation project from Hastings and Tennyson streets two years ago.

The walkway out, and the platform, which will feature a canopy-style roof, will disguise the pipeway exit which is just along the beach from the Tom Parker Fountain.

Work began on the project late last month and is expected to be completed in December.

Stage 2 Marine Parade Redevelopment Starts 2016

The major construction phase of Napier’s iconic Marine Parade redevelopment will begin in the New Year.

While construction was due to begin before Christmas, it was decided it would be less disruptive to both tourists and locals over the Christmas-New Year period if the work didn’t begin in earnest until January.

“There has been a lot of construction work along Marine Parade and in Napier’s Central Business District this year, so we thought it would be good to give everyone a break before we get into this project,” said Marine Parade redevelopment committee chairman Keith Price.

“Starting the work early in 2016 won’t affect our goal of having everything open for business by December next year.”

The redevelopment will incorporate water features, sculptures, a world-class skating facility and an area for outdoor concerts incorporating the former Marineland grandstand. The former Marineland site is to become a skating area designed by world-renowned skate park designer Richard Smith, catering for all levels of roller skaters, skateboarders as well as other roller sports such as roller derby and artistic skating.

The committee had worked hard with Paris Magdalinos Architects to ensure the final design, which was inspired by Maori mythology and the local environment, was innovative and multi-purpose.

Pathways will lead to lookout points aligned with Mahia and Cape Kidnappers, and will feature carvings and sculpted edges. There will also be a series of bubble-up water features leading to a feature pool with LED-lit computerised water jets.

New car parking to service both the new skate park and the existing playground area has been provided, and a significant car parking facility will be retained where the current leased parking is located, but it will be accessible as casual public parking as part of the redevelopment.

The new coastal viewing platform on the Marine Parade is actually pretty cool, I checked it out today in some glorious Hawke's Bay weather. It was very busy during the day as locals and tourists alike checked out Napier's newest civic asset.









Nice views





A busy Boxing Day on Emerson Street too

Welcome home I've been watching the viewing platform come together biking past it most days. Quite happy with how it's turned out too
