Cracks may spell end for historic building
NZ Herald 18 Nov 2010
An inner city Auckland building destined to be a brothel may instead have to be pulled down after large cracks were found in the walls this afternoon.
The old brick Palace Hotel on Victoria Street West – which was under renovation and due to be turned into a brothel – was evacuated after someone noticed cracks in the brickwork.
Perhaps the building just couldn’t stand the thought of it!
