Top 10 Famous Unfinished Buildings

3. New Zealand Parliament Buildings

3. New Zealand Parliament BuildingsThe parliamentarians of New Zealand have been working in an unfinished building that was supposedly to be completed in 1913. The plans were drawn in 1911 and the construction was to consist of two stages. Stage one integrated the important buildings while stage two integrated the auxiliary buildings like the library and the Crown Law Office. Regrettably the construction never got started till 1924 owing to the war in 1914. The building was then officially opened in 1995 with the stage two not even built. However they managed to build a library in the adjacent extra space called the Beehive.

Started in 1977, it was set to become a fully functional power generating plant in the next 7 years. Things however turned out otherwise, after having sunk about $2.5 billion in the project till 1984, the company responsible for the construction simply abandoned the project because it was too expensive to continue. They sold the machinery used in order to recover few millions of what was lost. The company that owns the structure is currently demolishing it.
