  1. Why are they wanting to build a little bit of civic square in Kelburn? Why not reflect the character of Kelburn by reflecting building such as the university’s red brick or the Carter observatory?

  2. Architecture aside I think a great improvement could be to provide a direct passage, over or under, from the lookout area to the footpath down to Rawhiti Terrace on the other side, so that people walking up through the gardens towards the university don’t need to make an annoying detour up and around the top of the building every time. But maybe that’s just me, and I haven’t used that route for a while.
