A multimillion dollar west Auckland apartment project has been axed. The Flo Apartments development, consisted of 91 residential apartments, at Rosebank Road in Avondale, and were pitched starting at an almost unheard of $370,000.

Real Estate Institute of New Zealand director, Bryan Thomson discusses what went wrong.
