The Economist compares the price of visiting public viewing platforms with the height of some of the world’s highest buildings. London’s The Shard is the least value for money charging £29.95 (NZ$57) for an adult to see the view from 244m. That’s almost US$0.19 per metre.
How does Auckland’s SkyTower compare?
Good value it turns out.
At 328m the building is considerably higher than The Shard and it costs just NZ$28 to peer out over the Hauraki Gulf. That works out at around 7 US cents per metre. A price putting it in the middle of the range of buildings surveyed for the Economist story.
