Aucklands new skyline

The Voice of Reason

Recommended Posts



Auckland's skyline is set to be transformed as developers buck gloomy property forecasts with plans for at least five skyscrapers in the next three years.

The 232m Elliot Tower planned for the corner of Victoria and Albert streets will become the city's second-tallest building, while the 144m Saffron Apartments at 51-53 Albert St will be the fifth. The other schemes aiming for the sky are the proposed 120m, 39-storey Antipodean Apartments on top of the St James Theatre, a 26-storey hotel - again in Albert St - and a 114m residential/retail tower in Shortland St.

Since I left NZ just over 2 years ago so many projects have been built. small verticle apartment buildings are common, but now it looks like some real skyline changers are in the works. Regardless of the economic downturn, Auckland is such a rapidly growing city that there always seems to be a market. Also, Auckland is now more than ever the capitol of Polynesia and will always attract people from the rest of pacifica.
