Distinctive car park takes shape


Contractors are on track to finish the four-storey car parking building behind the former Dunedin chief post office by mid-February.

Building owner Geoff Thomson, of Distinction Hotels, said Naylor Love Construction began building in July.

The work was progressing as planned and it was expected to be finished by mid-February.

‘‘It's starting to take shape now and looking good.''

The car park would look like the artist's impression (at right ) and include ‘‘scrolling on the concrete panels'' and vertical grilling.

The building would have about 150 parks and some would be available to businesses in the area.

‘‘It will definitely help grow the area because there is quite a shortage of car parks at this present time. It'll be a good addition to the area.''
