Those two buildings, right in front of Parliament, was part of the Banker's Row.  The arrival of the American Embassy deeply changed this once prestigious block.  The ambassy has been relocated since more than 10 years and yet, those prime parcels are still sitting empty.

Lovely buildings. It's too bad that a section of Wellington that had such a prominent distinction could not have been somewhat preserved, only to be demolished and replaced by nothing. I wonder how long the NCC under the conservative government is going to keep that lovely barrier up. They must be waiting for the former American embassy to decay so they can accept the next plan by the lower bidder.
