A single car park in the Auckland CBD has popped up on TradeMe for a cool $210,000, reports Stuff.
According to the listing, carparking buildings are being sold off throughout the city centre which is leaving new apartment and office-goers without spaces.
It was just last year when Auckland Council announced it would be redeveloping the Downtown Carpark near the Viaduct Basin.
That decision is being opposed by Auckland mayor Wayne Brown saying the council needs to recognise the need to “rely on the roading and carparking networks”.
With cars being pushed out of cities and spaces to park them drying up, purchasing a space may be the way forward for permanent residents.
The “hottest investment in town” is located near Shortland Street, Queen Street and Britomart, not far from the new Pacifica building.
It could be all yours for the eye-watering price $210,000 with $896 per year added on top for rates. However, that seems a lot for some painted while lines and a slab of concrete.
While buying a car park is somewhat of an unorthodox method of finding a spot, could it be the new norm?
