Comparison: North Harbour / Eden Park / Waterfront
Attached is a direct comparison for North Harbour Stadium against the current options.
My comparison is based on the criteria used in the Mallard presentation last Friday - and is therefore directly comparable.[see http://www.beehive.govt.nz/Documents/Files/Stadium%20Comparison.pdf]
The comments against North Harbour Stadium are my own based on publicly available information at www.stadium.co.nz - together with my estimate of some additional costs and general knowledge of the current debate and history of that Stadium as a former North Shore City councillor.
On this comparison North Harbour Stadium wins hands down - so the final decision will be based on issues not covered in the criteria such as CBD rejuvenation and Auckland City 'economic transformation'.
