Perhaps instead of the current focused trend on developing so many buildings (hopefully not to the level of certain horribly styled cities as found in many parts of the world, with skyscrapers restricting views and being an eyesore), it would be good to keep the landmark heritage buildings in Wellington as well as gardens (like Christchurch has had the foresight to do), instead of overdeveloping Nature which contributes to the ecological imbalance.
