Sky Garden tower proposal would soar above Hamilton’s CBD offering views up and down the Waikato River
Move over Auckland, Hamilton could be moving in on the tower-in-the-CBD market.
That’s the lofty goal developer John Heskett is reaching for in his third attempt to build a major tourism project in Waikato.
It’d be based around a 100-metre-high timber tower, the highest building in the heart of Hamilton’s CBD, next to the Waikato Museum on Victoria St.
It would feature a bungy and slide off the tower with a swing over the neighbouring Waikato River.
