Seems when the blowtorch is on SkyCity's CEO, he tries to shift the goal posts.
And how much advertising revenue is the Granny prepared to forego, if it grows a pair and properly investigates the whole wheeler-deal?
Found it... It was in response to a tweet by Craig about the London Shard.
I'd like to say something snarky about London's #Shard, but cities with Sky Towers shouldn't throw... anything. http://t.co/ZjFKiSj3
And the Swiss Re tower could do with a couple of, um, modest geodesic globes near the entrance.
Someone somewhere should write a Ph.D. thesis on the psychosexual dynamics of castration anxiety in contemporary architecture.
To top it off, maybe a water fountain on top the Swiss Re roof? Oh wait, there'll be complaints... from Britain's civil aviation department.
I posted on Twitter some time ago a hypothesis about building a pair of geodesic spheres at ground floor level opposite the London Gherkin.
It also glosses over SkyCity's history of uneasy industrial relations. As for Colin Espiner, every man has his price.
( OMG is this even really a word )"dis-benefits”.
It does sound a bit Newspeak-ish.
It’ll be the same with the RMA reforms – They’ll get rammed through, a compliant media will talk about couples bonking in public and in a year everyone will sit around wailing about how powerless they are to stop a Chinese corporation building a mega-resort at Cathedral cove, and wondering why that nice Mr. Key could possibly have let it happen.
It can only be poetic justice if the likes of Donald Trump and Emaar Properties propose something suitably super-tall in Parnell or Remuera or Mt Eden. Just for fun, I tweeted ACT's Epsom MP David Seymour if he'd veto any Trump projects. He simply replied, "nobody trumps the rule of law" and that Epsom is already the "highest population density of any electorate". It'd be even more amusing if Trump himself got pissed off and labelled Seymour a NIMBY.
Plunket has branded Eleanor Catton a traitorous ‘hua’
Maybe Plunket meant to tell Catton to 'puss off and go fork yourself'.
videotaped in late 67 or early 68 in TVNZ's old Waring Taylor Street studios in Wellington.
And not long after, they opened Avalon Studios.
Russ has the latest on the Oily One...
public service run into the ground and still their chums the captains of enterprise need public handouts to make their way in the world. Crowding out, my arse.
When is austerity not austerity? When it's neo-feudalism.
