  1. Vogel Street, it is the one. We had the Volga Street Party, NI. By today’s Standards, strangely Slavic. Men sang ‘The Volga Boatsong’, emigres played ‘Kalinka’, danced to Gliere, Mrs Lenya of Strathmore belted out ‘Marieke! Marieke!’, by Brel.

    Been finalising details for opening the NZ Loan and Mercantile Building tomorrow 3-5pm, on behalf of the building owner.

    Hope to see you there, come to the main roller door entry on Fryatt St for guidance on walkthrough pathway and to collect a handout on building history.

    We’ll have Heritage Volunteers on each level for your assistance – they’ll be wearing yellow high-vis vests for identification.

    Local historian Peter Entwisle will be stationed on the top floor for Q&A about the building’s history and significance.

    I will be roving through the complex and available to address building conservation and adaptive reuse, as well as the proposed redevelopment project that Russell Lund is leading through the resource consent process.

    The building crawl is relatively concise and areas are taped for your safety. Wear stout shoes – this is a construction site. You won’t need a hard hat or eye protection.


    █ Special thanks to Lund Staff, Glen Hazelton & Volunteers for making this event possible.

    I didn’t go, but it seems the Vogel St party was successful and people had fun in a positive way. I think this event models a better way than the Hyde St party for young people. What a difference when booze isn’t the focus.

    Tender glow suits buildings
    By Peter Entwisle – Art Beat
    OPINION What’s the best colour for illuminating heritage buildings at night? The question arises because the city council has a plan to convert much of its street lighting to light emitting diodes (LEDs), which will save it money on electricity bills.

    Street party draws thousands
    A public street party drew thousands of residents to the warehouse precinct at the weekend. The second Vogel Street Party featured a range of artists, performers, food vendors and musicians. And punters were encouraged to celebrate more than just the area’s rejuvenation.
