Metropolis Residences

Metropolis is a 40-storey residential / hotel skyscraper in the Auckland CBD of Auckland, New Zealand, developed in 1999 by Krukziener Properties. Commended for its style and quality, the NZ$180 million cost of its construction also led to major financial fallout.[3] Metropolis is considered one of Auckland's most exclusive apartment buildings,[4] and as of 2013 it is the tallest residential building in New Zealand.

On 11 December, 2013, Alain Robert climbed the building as part of a promotion for the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch.[5]
