there is only so much land there.its also reclaimed land,the whole structure is a specially designed light weight concrete structure because of the poor ground.Wellington is only a small city,and a bigger stadium would be too big for 9 out of 10 events.Only test match rugby would fill it.
Its is very close to The railway station,but its also close to residential areas.so there was a lot of to-ing and fro-ing.Thye are only allowed a certain number of "noisy and or night events per year
