Developer’s vision is frightening, says mayor

Auckland mayor John Banks has attacked a city developer and his plans for five apartment blocks on the water’s edge at Orakei.

As resource consent hearings for the development started, Mr Banks took the unusual step of issuing a statement to the Herald criticising the proposal and developer Tony Gapes’ company, the Redwood Group.

“The visual aspect is frightening, and the developer’s assertion this will be a quality project is hard to believe, Mr Banks said.

“Artist impressions of these flash glass and concrete boxes ring hollow in the face of past buildings from Redwood Group.”

He was referring to the bulky Scene One, Scene Two and Scene Three apartments blocks in downtown Auckland and the leaky Eden One and Eden Two townhouse blocks in Mt Eden.
