    Also agree with the Te Papa thing. Don't even think about taking it out of Wellington. I recall, when it was being built, 'they' believed the liquefaction thing was well factored in, I daresay though that remains to be proven.
    The Te Papa location i believe is the best location in Wellington ..unbelievable view and handy to the city

    Built on base isolators also.
    I haven't heard of any damage after the current spate of earthquakes - has there been any to Te Papa?

    before we veer too far from the original mention

    the point was that te papa needed a better location for their WAREHOUSE

    imho somewhere safer than upper hutt

    "Te Papa needs more storage space,".

    The move to Upper Hutt was a temporary solution for the museum.

    "It's a three-year lease with an option to extend for three more years,"

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/prop...pper-hutt-move

    there was a proposal to move some of the collection to south auckland

    but the cost of a big move was prohibitive

    Te Papa's controversial plans for a South Auckland exhibition and storage space are on hold, after its $40 million budget bid was rejected.

    The cost has blown out by a third and the project director has now left the museum.

    The Te Papa Manukau project was announced in 2013 by then culture and heritage minister Chris Finlayson.

    It proposed a new shared exhibition, education and storage facility in South Auckland's Hayman Park, which would house up to half of Te Papa's treasures.

    The project was to be a collaboration with Auckland Art Gallery and Auckland War Memorial Museum, with Te Papa shouldering the building and running costs.

    Pacifica seems all go

    About 20 to 30 per cent of Pacifica pre-sales had been made to foreigners, he said - mainly Chinese, after the project was marketed in Shanghai.


    By August 18 - the most recent sales figures Hengyi will provide - Lloyd said deposits had been paid on more than half the units, worth a combined $200m - even though nothing exists yet.

    But will the huge Pacifica project flood the market for apartments?

    Pete Evans, Colliers' residential project marketing national director, said next year would see the highest number of Auckland apartments completed in more than a decade - but not enough to meet demand, and only a year's supply.

    "In major cities with population growth, we would expect supply to be anywhere between 12 to 24 months.
