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.

Yes Palmerston North feels suprising urban driving through the city centre with it's little skyline and mini-Bank West tower.
Yeah and they dont have an octagon with a statue of a guy sitting down, for nothing y'know.
More glass= class
That's the spirit bro.

Can anyone tell me what that building is , first Tall from the left ? that one must be sort of new.
If I remember correctly that one is 'Mobil on Park' - Mobil being the company (a chain of Service Stations), and Park being the name of the Street. It's near the Beehive.

Lol sounds like some funny stuff went on. Nice pic too.
I know this is only a pic, not an official project but I stumbled across it and thought I might as well post it bigger. Why the banana not?

the Ak city council has put into action a cbd streetscapes renewal programme that should make the 'shitting over' less of a shitting, lol
The only person that could help Auckland now is William Shatner.
Auckland is well known for having destroyed many famous historical buildings, and Wellington is well known for having not.
Yo MoxPearl,

Awesome to have you join the forums man. Here's your complimentary Milo and Krispie biscuit.
Thought I might as well post this.

Just yesturday I noticed they started using the Wellington skyline as a background on the late news - usually it's just Auckland but it's good to see.

The feeling I know is lost in a limo. Some of those like 30 seaters are huge.

I don't know how anyone is going to be able to do an accurate count for culla , unless they live there for a month and do a stocktake ! :)

We could apply for funding from the government to create a "skyscraper assessment team" to live there for a few months and fully assess every skyscraper for a government database, and get paid to do it.

I usually wouldn't suggest the idea seeing as the government could just look out the window of the Beehive and count them, but going by the recent extravagant spendings by the goverment such as using childrens reading money for stomach stapling operations, and maori tv money to pay a con man from Canada, this project seems worth while.

Excellent. I like the render with those colours. I've seen some very impressive designs overseas using a similar concept.
