    “… there will be a café or retail space on the ground floor, which will help activate and make Te Ngākau even more of a people place.”
    Seriously, the way to make Civic Square a people place is simple, FIX THE LIBRARY ( and the CAB). Until this is done, a café in the MOB is like whistling at a tornado.

    25 years is a reasonable length of time to lease something to somebody respectable. Why is the Council leasing waterfront land for a dollar a year to private people for over 100 years?

    With this partnership, at this fantastic location in the heart of Wellington, we intend to do something extraordinary for music and music education in this country. [via twitter]

    Grant. Can you please disclose the full (financial) deal? Just asking.

    What’s happening about the Council coming back to Civic Square as they’ve said they would?

    Well done Grant Guilford! He’s getting Wellington University moving at least.

    Michael what a good question. Civic centre without civic?! But the Council did a deal with PWC and is now renting/leasing its building on the Terrace so that PWC could move to its new Willis Bond “wall of buildings” (what was the deal there?) which block off the waterfront and views.
    Let’s have full disclosure by the Council of all these deals…so that we can see who is benefiting and how much the ratepayers are propping up private companies. It’s our money, our rates increases.
