    It took us about two years to destroy the last freak show proposal. We can do it again.

    If the developer wants to have his background questioned, and cold and deliberate exposure for what the financing is and who is sitting in the wings running this project – for the project to be intensively pulled apart and undermined, here we come. Collectively.

    Further. Who was it that dislodged Sir Miles Warren from his own architectural practice, the former Warren and Mahoney. It would seem that through the proposed Dunedin ‘hotel and apartment building’ for the Chinese masters, we’re also caused to deal with lowrise buggers from closer to home.

    ODT Editorial: Five-star hotel: up, up or away?
    OPINION The battle lines are well and truly drawn in the latest bid for a five-star hotel in Dunedin. And, with the resource consent lodged, the public notified and submissions opened, the only thing that seems certain is the project will dominate the news for some time. Anthony Tosswill is the Tekapo businessman behind the estimated $75million project. Its second incarnation, designed by Christchurch-based architect Thom Craig, is a proposal for a 17-storey building featuring three glass towers around a central core. It would be sited on land owned by Dunedin City Council at the corner of Moray Pl and Filleul St, opposite the Dunedin Town Hall. It would contain 210 hotel rooms, 64 apartments, four penthouse suites, and licensed premises, retail, conference and meeting spaces, and a hot pool and spa complex. The design is substantially different to the proposal submitted by the previous architect, Dunedin-based Ken Taylor. Although it is the same project, in many ways it is “Mark 3”, given the two designs came on the heels of a separate waterfront hotel proposal. So will it be a case of third time lucky? Cont/
