Skinny tower marketed as 'corporate crash pad'

Sunday 6 June 2004

Apartments in Columbard - Auckland's skinniest new apartment tower - are being marketed as a "corporate crash pad".

By The Landlord

Tired, itinerant, short-stay businesspeople looking for a quick and fairly cheap kip are the target market for the just-named 144-unit high-rise block at 20 Wyndham St.

Compact rooms are being marketed from $220 a week and potential guests are being invited to make an appointment and view what the tower's owner describes as self-contained sleeping studios.

"So you're in the middle of Auckland, on Queen St," goes the ad on the website. "It's been a long day, it's the end of the night, you've just finished work - whatever. You want to crash, be at home, in your own space. On your way to get a taxi you look up Wyndham Street - 'woah, what's that crazy skinny building?' That's Columbard. That's your Corporate Crash Pad."
