Help save St David's Church Khyber Pass

Mary from Mount Roskill

Auckland is losing all of its history. Save this beautiful Church and keep it for generations to come.
St David's - The Soldiers’ Memorial Church commissioned on ANZAC Day 1927 to commemorate our national loss - has been put up for sale by commercial tender. We are calling on New Zealanders to help buy the church to protect it in perpetuity as a living memorial for all New Zealanders.
Donate what you can, $1, $5, $10 - when this church is gone it's gone forever.

Million-dollar dumps: The Auckland car park worth $82.5 million

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Downtown Auckland is going through huge transformation with its various streetscape and transport projects. But in stark contrast, several plots of land worth hundreds of millions of dollars have sat as car parks since buildings were knocked down in the 1980s.

The Elliott St car park sits on a 4417 square metre plot of land, valued at $82.5 million.

The land has sat undeveloped as a car park - where an hour will cost you $19 - since the Royal International Hotel was demolished in 1987.

It was purchased by Singapore company NDG Asia Pacific (NZ) Limited for $53m in 2012, and in 2017 the company was given approval by the Overseas Investment Office to build and operate a 52-storey, five- star Ritz-Carlton Hotel, with 300 guest rooms, four floors for hotel facilities, six for retail and five for car parking.

The development is expected to cost $350m, with the start of construction dependent on the completion of City Rail Link. However, the resource consent for the tower is due to expire in October.

Needing a new wooden outdoor garden gate

Vasanti from Royal Oak

Hi there

My garden gate was damaged recently. It had literally been pulled or bashed off it's solid steel bolts and is also hanging down on one end. It needs to be replaced.
So, please if you know of a person/company who are gate builders- please let me know. (Picture of damaged gate)
Thank you
