The long awaited upgrade of [ST PATRICK'S SQUARE - PART A] is complete and what a revelation it is - Hallelujah ! What was a depressing patch of lawn and rocks is now an example of good urban design. We love the artworks by Steve Woodward and Mary-Louise Brown, the water features, the public seating that can also be used as a table top, the paving, the lights and all the different textures. The upgrade covers the entire area between Albert, Hobson, Swanson and Wyndham Streets, and also complements the 2007 restoration of St Patrick's Cathedral. All that is needed now is for the [SAFFRON TOWER] to be built, more pavement cafe's spilling onto the square and for the lazy landlords in the area to clean up their buildings and restore some pride. Praise be to the Auckland City Council for having some foresight.
