I reckon a roof top addition to the tower insurance building would look stunning, i like the clash of old and new, they did a good job to hsbc tower down there
I was unaware that this was the case, i havn't seen this building in the flesh but from the pictures it looks like they have refurbished the older part. learning that they demolished 90% of it leaving the facade is disturbing, the developers shouldn't be allowed to get away with shit like this, i thought that a building like that would be protected under historical status or something. I hope this isn't a trend, some developers need to be reined in all they care about is money.flyin_higher said:Now I fell like im picking on you.
Are you serious though? The HSBC development was voted as one of worst examples of heritage restoration in Wellington by the New Zealand Institute of Architects(NZIA). All the developer did was demolish 90% of the historic building onsite, leaving the front of it as a facade for the parking levels.
Don't forget Napier-Hastings has a combined pop of 115,000 or something like that anyway i know its higher than Tauranga (109,000) but not for long as everyone knows, Hamilton is a way off though at 150,000 and growing at 2,500-3,000 each year it may take a while for Tauranga to catch although is growing twice as fast with 5,000-6,000 each year.Marky Mark said:Tauranga would be No 5 now with its Population over taking Dunedin ... next on its list should be Hamilton Sitting at No 4 !
