Willis Street demo

Now that they’ve rebuilt one side of Willis Street, they’ve started on the other. Not sure what’s going there though – thought the new office, apartments and shops on the first side were enough but perhaps not! There’s lots of old shops they’re pulling apart now – like Stirling Sports that was there for 25 years.

At least now we can see something’s happening. For a while there it was just end-of-line sales and boarded up windows – you could easily be mistaken in thinking that business was doomed in Wellington if you stumbled upon that part of town.

They’ve demolished all the way back to Boulcott Street, including the apartments that were at the top (were they Orange Apartments?).

Oooo, am definitely going to go for a walk up around the back to Boulcott St later so I can see.
