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.

Yay! finally a Wellington thread. Those museum apartments look pretty classy. If only we had a forumer that lived down there so we could get some photos.

No offence to the Aklers here, but the Wellington CBD at street level really shits all over Auckland.
I'm not denying it.
That one by the railway station looks exactly like the newish tower on Anzac Ave in Auckland. It's exactly the same shape and same colours - even the yellow strip down the side is the same. Must be the same developers/architects.
I agree - i'm liking this very much. Isn't there a lowrise development in Tauranga using colours like this too?

That looks awesome man. Wellington gets some cool buildings!
Yeah they do... apart from that orange one next door.

Is that a refurbishment/extention of an existing building?
Yeah that wouldn't be bad, but building height is probably also limited by the fact there is a high earthquake risk there. And a low, dense skyline could look quite nice anyway.
