Continuing from the previous thread - a fresh start for a new stadium for Dunedin.
Some of the surrounding area will be demolished to make way for the realignment of SH 88; on the stadium side of the Leith, the warehouses and storage tanks toward the Harbour would go; on the other side of the Leith some of the warehousing along the railway line would go for the road. Over time other parts closer to Anzac Ave would become part of an extended campus area and redeveloped by the University of Polytech.Thanks Jarbury, YES ! it is fantastic :applause: ! What is planned for the surrounding area, I hope that those warehouses are not a permanent feature
I don't think it's a real project as such -- just part of the architects' ideas for types of development surrounding the stadium area. Eventually the quarry adjacent to the stadium will close and why not something like a biodome, an indoor skifield, gondola or cablecar to Signal Hill overlooking the city? The area around the stadium should experience development pressure though both from the University and private sector. The marina area is ripe for some spending ...^^Sweet plan for Dunedin, what is this Antartic Bio Dome all about?
No such luck (with the vision), Port Otago is keeping the storage tanks exactly where they are (no park possible); and this links up with the Security Area planned for the Harbourside. This is still a working port area....on the stadium side of the Leith, the warehouses and storage tanks toward the Harbour would go...
