It’s 35 metres tall, takes up an area of ground about 100 square metres and you can’t demolish it or make any substantial changes.

But liquidators are hoping a 1914 shot tower will attract a bid of at least $50,000 to help repay its owners’ debt to Auckland Council.

Shot Tower Mt Eden Limited, now in liquidation, is owned by property developer Tony Gapes.

It owns an historic tower on a prime piece of Auckland land, on Normanby Rd, Mt Eden.


Don't be shy! Have your say....
