Courting Builders ... #95

This is the site for our new Supreme Court ... just across the road from the "crap" book shop ! This used to be a park .. a secluded restful place at the Government end of Lambton Quay. City Councils fight developers over reducing our green areas and Government promotes clean green NZ till they require a bit of it for their own purposes ... and that seems to be a trait of all political parties. So now we have a bare building site waiting for years of construction.

The Supreme Court sits in Wellington. The Court is to get a new $67millon home to be built beside, and to expand into the historic High Court building, located near Parliament, although the court is being housed in temporary facilities while the new building is built and the High Court building refurbished.
