Stadium site too expensive
By Allison Rudd
Otago Polytechnic has decided against moving its Institute of Sport and Adventure to the Forsyth Barr Stadium, saying fit-out and lease costs are higher than it can afford.
The indicative fit-out costs of $800,000 and annual lease costs of at least $75,000 were “higher than we can afford”. The move also posed “too much risk long term due to lack of ownership, the necessary length of occupation to recoup the fit-out costs and some access issues.”
