Westpac Tower is a remarkably unremarkable example of late 1970s architecture. It houses the bank that gives it its name and a couple of government departments (including the one I work for) that have been based there for around 18 months since the November 2016 Kaikoura earthquake rendered our previous office uninhabitable.
It just fails to make the list of Wellington’s 10 tallest buildings.
The most interesting thing about it (at least according the the media whenever there is a story on it) isn’t visible from the outside. As the newspapers put it, the brothers who own it originally made their money in the “brothel real estate” business.
