Wellington's old air traffic control tower spent 60 years watching over the capital's skies, but now it is being demolished and its spot will make way for housing in the future, its owner says.
The building, affectionately called "Arnold", is a landmark of Tirangi Rd and was decommissioned as a control tower in 2018.
The tower, in Rongotai, went up for sale last October and was bought by Wellington Airport. While the sale price was not disclosed, Stuff understands the airport paid about $1.2 million.

Wellington’s sprinkler ban has been lifted– but with sporadic rain forecast for winter residents still need to avoid wasting water.
The restrictions were put in place for the Hutt Valley, South Wairarapa, Wellington city and Porirua in mid-February as water usage soared during the summer months.
From Tuesday, residents in Lower Hutt, Porirua and Wellington city can again use sprinklers and irrigation systems, Wellington Water said. In Upper Hutt and South Wairarapa people can do so every second day, as is usual.
Most of the Wellington region’s drinking water comes from rivers and the Waiwhetu aquifer under the Hutt Valley. River levels fell to 90 per cent before the sprinkler ban.
Meanwhile, people in the Wairarapa town of Carterton still have to boil their water after E. coli bacteria was found in the water supply on March 12.
