Beautiful Auckland New Zealand !!!!!!!!!!!

by Lana
(New jersey )

My family and I came to migrate our feet on this beautiful island New Zealand.


We visited Auckland, New Zealand's largest city and the sky tower in Auckland CBD which stands at 328 Meters, so that makes it the TALLEST TOWER in the SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE.

We took a truely captivating elevator journey up higher and higher in the sky. Once we got up to the top; SPEECHLESS! Huge city and much lovelier than Sydney!!!!!!!!!! We did the SKY WALK and the SKY-JUMP.

When in Auckland visit the Sky Tower, or you can walk over the Auckland Harbour bridge, the coat hanger exactly like Sydney's.

Thank you so much New Zealand for our great visit, we truly felt welcome.

Love you KIWIS. xxxxxxxoooooooooooooooo

Great Story on nz thanks!

The elliot tower will be completed in 2011, don't know when but it will be 218 meters tall.

The tower consists of 62 levels above the podium and has been designed to "address" Albert Street through being close to this boundary and the apartments are designed as cross over duplexes so that each has morning and afternoon sun and views.

Common space for residents is provided by the podium roof garden and two sky gardens located at third points on the tower. These also provide green spaces up the tower, and with large trees oxygenating the intake air to the mechanical plant and contributing to sustainable design principles which are further enhanced by the rooftop solar collectors and co-generation of heat from mechanical plants.

The top of the tower has two penthouses with decks, balconies and pergolas, and above are three layered roof forms - both to defer to Sky Tower in urban form terms and to provide 180 solar collectors which will provide hot water to the entire complex for 65% of the year.

The tower top has been carefully considered such that it provides a positive cap to the building, but is light and open, encapsulating a spatial lightness.

The stair to the east façade extends above the top of the building, which, along with the curved and extended glass façade, dissolves into the sky. This characteristic is further enhanced by the curved façade extending beyond the north and south ends of the tower.

Elliot Tower
by: Jilly

Great story Lana!!
Looks like the Elliot towers has the go ahead now, don't know when it will be completed though. It will be 218 meters tall; taller than the Sky Deck on the Sky Tower.
It will be the tallest 'building' in Auckland but Sky Tower would still be the tallest 'structure'.

Thank you for that great story about NZ but don't you think the Elliot Tower is taller than the sky tower's SKY DECK? The Elliot Tower is 234 meters tall, that will interfere with the sky tower. And the penthouse, all the nosey people up so high and the sky tower is right there above their heads, they will probably throw stuff at it. IDK?????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
