Fate of Auckland heritage building undecided

6:07 am on 1 October 2013

Auckland Council says it will be at least a week before the fate of a cracked heritage building is decided.

The 128-year old Wong Doo building, on Hobson Street, is due to be restored and incorporated into a retail and apartment complex.

Construction at the site was halted last week after a crack at the back of a building was discovered.

A council spokeperson says engineers are assessing the situation but it will be at least a week before a decision is made.
