Opposition to a proposed super brothel in Auckland’s CBD looks to be unanimous with just hours left for the public to have their say. John and Michael Chow plan to build a 15-storey development called the Penthouse Club, which would include a brothel and entertainment facilities, on Victoria St, opposite SkyCity. Auckland Council’s resource consent team had received 143 submissions by just after 2pm today, all in opposition to the project. With the public consultation period set to close at 5pm, council spokeswoman Charlotte Haycock said submissions were still coming in. A summary of total submissions for and against the project will be available early next week.
