Commercial residential, 143-193 Moray Place : ODT bias, ignores arguments of opposing legal experts

THUS we gather that the owners/editorial team of the Otago Daily Times have deemed Anthony Tosswill’s proposal for a tall fat Moray Place apartment building (commercial residential) is worthy of being built. Ra Ra ODT.

If you (ODT) want to print half the story, presume away…. to Not be the independent courier of what is public information contrary to the arguments of the greying Mr Page, Counsel for Mr Tosswill’s NZ Horizons Hospitality Group Ltd (widely suspected as a vehicle for Asian finance, yet to bring even one of “12 hotels” on his South Island wish list out of the ground – funny that).

For your attention :
The legal submissions of Ms Semple, Counsel for Millennium and Copthorne Hotels New Zealand Ltd (owner of the 3 star Kingsgate), an affected party.

Ms Semple maintains that the application cannot be lawfully unbundled.

The legal submissions of Mr Hardie, Counsel for Misbeary Holdings Ltd are not yet available online at the DCC website.

If the independent commissioners agree with Mr Page then it’s “See you in Court, Buster”.

    Don’t you just love how words can be mangled.
    ‘Unbundling’ planning rules meaning…. circumventing planning rules.
    How do these bloody lawyers live with this bullshit?

      I could go with “unbundling” -yes- if it meant a logical solution to the oversize plan of the planned visual naffness. Unbundle 5 star hotel from rental apartments, then a modest scale of building could fit on that site without being the physical equivalent of a fart in a lift. Whether rentals or hotel on that site, the other could be built elsewhere and if it were in a gully surrounded by large trees even the glass retro-Chase Corporation styling wouldn’t be unbearably vulgar.
