Tiny, tacky boxes coming to a neighbourhood near you

NBR and TVNZ have reported about the tiny, tacky, apartment complex soon to be rising 15 stories about New Lynn.

A Hong Kong-style apartment tower destined for New Lynn, west Auckland, has received the go-ahead.

Auckland Council has granted resource consent for a 10-storey residential tower above the new Merchant Quarter building in New Lynn.

Construction is expected to begin this month. 

The office of mayor Len Brown issued a media statement today claiming that “Aucklanders are embracing options being offered in quality, compact and affordable housing”.

Prices start at $250,000 for the 110 one- and two-bedrooms apartments on offer.

Mr Brown says more than half the apartments have already been sold off the plans.

Watch the TVNZ video and look at looney Len grinning like the cat who licked the cream, practically jizzing in his pants that people want what he calls “affordable housing”.
