Heritage concerns over converting Auckland landmark into apartments

Plans to convert Auckland’s Civic Administration Building into apartments are causing a stir over how to keep the original features of the Category A historic building.

Developer John Love and heritage experts are grappling with replacing the facade of the city’s first skyscraper, regarded as a fine example of modernist architecture.

Groups like Heritage New Zealand, Auckland’s Character Coalition and the Civic Trust want to keep as much of the original facade as possible.
