The property at 34-36 Tirangi Road in Wellington, New Zealand, served as the air traffic control tower for the Wellington Airport from 1959 to 2018, and then was replaced by a new tower. Now the old tower, which the neighbors call "Arnold," is for sale. It is listed as having one bedroom and one bathroom, an interior space of 290 square meters, a land area of 941 square meters, and an outstanding view of the airport runways. The price right now is $895,000 (US$596,000), and the buyer will have to upgrade it with earthquake reinforcement and asbestos abatement, so the real estate company thinks it will most likely be torn down by developers, unless someone really, really wants to live in an air traffic control tower. -via Metafilter
