Renowned architect Mark Wassung of Design Engine Architects has recently completed detailed designs of a space-age mixed-use building dubbed ‘Tron Tower’. The grandiose tower will be situated in Hamilton’s CBD and will include a 5-star hotel and possibly a monorail, to link it to the Claudelands Events Centre and Centre Place. Other exciting aspects of the design include wharfs and jetties that will stretch along the Waikato River from Cambridge to Port Waikato. Both ideas have been favourably received by the Council and discussions are currently underway with potential investors, the outcome largely deciding whether Tron Tower will be 5, 10, 20 or 30 stories high. These details should be confirmed by the end of January 2012, see J130898 for more information.
