Len Brown’s proposed new tower for Auckland

Will this be Len’s legacy building for Auckland? Ironically it is also from China.



Unamused Chinese censors have been at work to stop people sniggering over the new Beijing headquarters of the People’s Daily newspaper, which bears an unfortunate resemblance to part of the male anatomy.

    That dosnt look like a penis. It looks like Len brown tho. Hahaha

  • Garbageman

    question is who is the bigger knob ?

  • Nechtan

    My greatest concern is it would only stay up for a short while.

  • James Growley

    How long will it take for some enterprising person to start selling bronze replica’s of Len’s willie as paper weights………

  • Sponge

    A bit big for Len I would have thought and as Nechtan said – how long would it last? My view 4/10.

  • GazzW

    Some vertical bracing reinforcement needed around the 8th and 9th floors?

  • Elliot Flowers

    Muck Raker or Slut Fucker? No one looks good here!

    The hen is behind the bush…let the dog go 10 feet then call it back. The chickens go wild. Slaters work is done!

    Robin Bain has a bigger cork than Lenny ‘the bruce’ Brown…

  • Cadwallader

    The lift would only take two minutes to shoot up the centre…but would it stop there or make a mess?

  • Dave

    To be a representation to Lennie Brown, the baddest dog in Dorkland town, it needs to be about 25 stories shorter, and come down within 5 minutes of being erected.

    Short in stature, short…………… :)

    Hahahaha! Penis envy?

  • johnbronkhorst

    If built of a fault line….there will be no need for batteries.

  • Honcho

    Would not be stepping foot into that tower, if its like Len, it will only be staying up for about two minutes.

  • Eiselmann

    Beijing headquarters of the People‚Äôs Daily newspaper,………
    Didn’t know the Herald had a Chinese office…guess it makes sense.

  • Patrick

    Structural Engineers have analysed this erection and declared it unsafe, off the record they have predicted that in all likelihood it would come down inside of two minutes in the first big blow

  • Patrick

    Poor mans imitation of London’s “Gherkin” I am sure Sir Norman Foster will be speaking with the Chinese re some royalty fees.

  • Guest

    ahaha LOL, it will only last a few minutes.
