The construction of the New Lynn Railway Station and Bus Interchange was accompanied by extensive landscaping. Native Nikau palms were planted, creating a tropical feel. Sometimes these plants can look a bit scruffy, like in this example, but they will shed the old leaves and look like new.

The rust-clad building is part of the Merchant Quarter development, probably a parking building. An apartment tower is planned to go on top, and apartments are being pre-sold now.
