[PROJECT] + QUEEN'S WHARF 2011

Finally, after what must be the biggest and most embarrassing fiasco that Auckland has ever witnessed, the latest (and hopefully final) design proposals for [QUEEN'S WHARF) have been revealed.  The "cloud" is a temporary structure that will accommodate 6 000 people during the Rugby World Cup 2011. The "cloud" will be a hub for our International guests, the media and locals where they will be entertained with live music and festive events. One of the sheds will be torn down and Shed 10 will be renovated. It is envisaged that after the RWC 2011, Queens's Wharf will blossom and become an International Cruise Liner Terminal. We can't wait to see this ugly duckling turn into a beautiful swan - a sophisticated gateway for downtown Auckland.

  6. Geez. I can't believe HOW LONG this thing has bloody taken. Can they get off their arses and start on the damn project already? What a shame Shed 10 is being retained :(

  7. The good news is that they are currently dismantling Shed 11 and the temporary structure is already under construction off site. I can only assume that it will be like putting a jigsaw puzzle together and will rise rapidly.

    It is also refreshing to see that so many cooks have been left out of the equation. If this was only a month back we would have had Mike Lee vs John Banks vs John Key vs Alex Swney blah blah blah .... now the current leadsers are all working together and it looks as if Auckland is finally going to get things done - there is hope :)

    Couldn't agree more - Shed 10 should be removed and placed in some nimby's back yard.
