Mu­seum wins beauty con­test

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

The Auck­land War Me­mo­rial Mu­seum was named the city’s best build­ing in the on­line sur­vey, in which more than 2500 peo­ple voted.

Oth­ers in the top five were the down­town ferry build­ing, the Chancery, West Plaza and the Me­trop­o­lis.

And the worst build­ings in our town?

The green, white and red New­ton Com­fort Inn and Suites was voted the worst, fol­lowed by the Auck­land City Coun­cil of­fices, the Scene apart­ments, the Tank Farm and Down­town Shop­ping Cen­tre.

“As soon as I got the call about the sur­vey I knew ex­actly what it was for and it wasn’t to let me know that we’d won,” says New­ton Com­fort Inn and Suites gen­eral man­ager Trish Miles.

“This sort of pub­lic­ity is just what I need to per­suade the pow­ers that be to get the build­ing painted sooner rather than later.”

In­gite Ar­chi­tects, which ran the sur­vey, says it plan to run it again next year.
