Upon reading the NZHerald online this morning, I came across todays quote of the day which had me chuckling for a while.
It appears that developer Mr Tony Gapes plans to build 146 apartments on the water's edge at Orakei in Auckland. It seems that there is about 500 folk who find this to be not such a good idea.
Mr Gapes will start a two-week public hearing today for resource consent before many of the opponents give evidence against what local Councillor Aaron Bhatnagar has called "East Germany by the sea".
I can just imagine the developers and designers delight in having created designs on something so unique in the Southern Hemisphere.
