Magazine: Second time around
By Mark Price
For 17 years, developers have talked of turning Dunedin’s once-grand-now-derelict former chief post office in Princes St into a hotel. But, it has never happened. Mark Price tries to find out if the current owner has what it takes to salvage one of the city’s heritage landmarks.
What if? – It is well known that internal fabric stored in the basement ‘disappeared out the back door’ – by the truckload – when a former owner of the building, who shops at the casino, allowed a gang debt collector to occupy the basement flat.
