You can't beat 'The Barn' IN OSTEND PHONE 372 5555 New commercial hub ready to open Finishing touches: Workers were starting the landscaping and adding the finishing touches to the new building complex last week. By JEROME GAVELLE A new commercial hub is due to open in the next two weeks as construction work on the multi-million dollar project in the heart of Oneroa comes to an end. Three new eateries and a real estate agency are plan- ning to open their doors at the Ocean View Rd venue before Christmas. Wai Kitchen Cafe ´ will occupy the top floor of the building on the main road level just above Red Crab Thai which will be able to seat 70 patrons. One level down, Ray White real estate agency will be under the pub- lic deck, next to the Thai res- taurant. A gelataria offering icecreams, crepes and smoothies will occupy the last retail space on the bottom terrace. This bottom level is almost at the level of the northern service lane, the lower road parallel to Ocean View Rd, where customers will be able to park their cars. Construction workers were putting the finishing touches to the public deck, the landscaping and the building last week. Members of the public will be able to walk down a con- crete staircase and path lead- ing through the landscaped grounds from Ocean View Rd to the lower lane once works are complete. This access, along with the public viewing platform, was negotiated by the council with the owner as part of the consenting process. It means most passers-by and vehicles can enjoy the view of the bay from the main road. Whelan Construction man- ager Geoff Whelan says it took only nine months to com- plete the 470 square metre construction. It is a top-class building with top of the range materials,'' he says. The building was designed by Avery Architecture and is made of wood, concrete, glass, stainless steel and alu- minium. We have installed a fresh water purification system for the building and tap water will be potable in every area,'' Mr Whelan says. Tin sculpture may go down the toilet A gift for the island: Jeff Thomson's Contour above Matiatia Bay may be decommissioned. By GILL ALCOCK One of the first decisions the new local board will have to make is whether to ratify a decision to decommission the controversial work of art that appears to roll down the hillside at Matiatia. Jeff Thomson's sculpture officially titled Contour, and unofficially referred to as the tin toilet roll, is sited on pub- lic land below the Matiatia- Church Bay walkway. It was gifted to the Auck- land City Council in 2005 following that year's head- land Sculpture of the Gulf exhibition. Now a request has been made to the new Auckland Council from the organisers of headland -- Sculpture on the Gulf 2011 -- to remove the sculpture before next year's event because of con- cerns about its state of repair, and the confusion it causes by being so close to other exhibited works. A similar request by head- land organising committee in 2007 was refused by the sculpture's main sponsor John Gow, who stated in a letter he did not support the work being temporarily or permanently decommis- sioned. This decision was backed by the Auckland City Council's public art subcom- mittee. Now, however, given the sculpture has lost some of its shape and is suffering from rust, Mr Gow has reconsidered the issues and in another letter to headland organisers, says he accepts the proposal to decom- mission the work. The issue was to be discussed last night at the local board meeting. The board was to hear at the meeting that following the artist's and the sponsors' approval, Auckland Council has agreed to the decommission and removal of Contour, and that all costs associated will be covered by a benefactor connected to the exhibition, with labour pro- vided by volunteers.
