Buildings on Bealey Avenue

September 19, 2014

I’ve always admired these lovely wooden buildings on Bealey Avenue – unfortunately I don’t know much about them or if they have a group name. Like a lot of wooden buildings, they appear to have come through the earthquakes relatively unscathed (though they’ve probably needed at least some work on them I suspect).

Love the large Magnolia tree in the front and the Cabbagge Trees as well.

Glass going in on new Gloucester Street Building

This building is on the corner of Durham and Gloucester Street. It’s got a very distinctive wavy design and it looks really interesting now that the glass is going in. Can’t wait to see it all finished.

Anderson Lloyd House on Gloucester Street

June 28, 2014

2014-06-28-15.21

This is a new building on Gloucester Street. Local law firm Anderson Lloyd have taken naming rights on the building and are now located in the building after operating from a converted warehouse for three hours (after our quakes). According to their website the building was “developed by Amherst Properties, designed by international architects Fourfoursixsix, and built by Ganellen.”

It’s certainly nice to see new buildings being completed and now utilised.

New Building on Moorhouse Avenue

There are a lot of new buildings on Moorhouse Avenue these days, but this building certainly stands out from the rest thanks to the decorative steel on it. I rather like it. It’s certainly very striking.
