Christchurch’s NG building has been saved from being demolished as its owners make one last-ditch effort to save their beloved building from the bulldozers.
Now, the century-old building’s fate rests with the High Court.
After an almost decade-long stalemate, building owner Ronald Logan told 1 NEWS he expected the issue would have been solved years earlier.
It comes as the 110-year-old building was set to be demolished for an indoor arena costing almost $500,000.

It’s the last building standing in the way of the stadium rollout, and Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) issued a notice of intention to take the land under the compulsory acquisition process in March.
“I would have thought this would have been solved years ago, I’m speechless really – it’s beyond comprehension,” Logan says.
