    Well, if they're going to build on the waterfront, they should at least make it into an advantage. Have a look at these two stadiums, which are on the river front, looking over downtown Pittsburgh.

    PNC Park, home of the Pittsburgh Pirates

    Heinz Field, home of the Steelers

    The Pirates couldn't win a punch up with a nine-year old, but people still go to the games just for the views. And these were built by a post-industrial, depressed little town with a shrinking population and a flat-lined economy.

    Settle down everyone. The Herald has weighed in on the matter, as per [url [] Bernard Orsman's story here. ]

    Looks like either the Eden Park interests or Christchurch are the winners then. When the Herald lays into big projects like that, they don't happen. Remember how the TelstraClear cable network got canned, even though the HF coax wasn't "thick as toilet paper rolls"?

  • Gregor Ronald,

    C'mon guys, who put the hemorrhoid cushion on the photo of Auckland's waterfront? Stop being silly, this is a serious issue! That's enough, now show us the proper plan and stop being puerile.
