Petition to Auckland City Council, The Buchan Group, Kit Parkinson, Ōrākei Local Board, Urban Partners, Jonathan Haydn Staples, Nigel Vincent Staples, Desley Simpson
Mission Bay has Art Deco buildings which cities outside Auckland preserve with great care and details. For example Napier, and Miami Beach are cities with wonderful Art Deco buildings and a large amount of tourism just because of this architecture. The Mission Bay Cinema and DeFontaine buildings are beautiful examples of Art Deco architecture and need to be preserved. Unfortunately Auckland City Council does not deem Art Deco historic like it does Victorian villas.
The unitary plan allows for several story buildings which is great progress for Mission Bay, however the facade of the architecture can be preserved without destroying these fine pieces of architecture.
This petition is to consider a redevelopment that preserves the art deco architecture and keeps the front (facades) of the buildings.
