Justin Hemmes Bought a Seaplane to Get to Work

Have you ever been so frustrated with your morning commute that you said “fuck it” and did something crazy? Maybe you decided you would buy a bike and ride to work each day, or catch the train from a more “reliable” station. How ~outrageous~ of you.

Well, CEO of Merivale Justin Hemmes has seen your bike and raises you a god damn seaplane.

Yep, Justin just slapped his hour-and-a-half commute from Vaucluse to Newport in its stupid face with a briefcase full of cash. The briefcase then morphed into a seaplane that now gets him to work in six minutes. Six.

I can barely drag myself to the pleb (train) station in six minutes, but that could just be my disdain for leaving bed getting the better of me.

It’s not like he has to go far to get to or from the plane either, it takes off from outside his home and drops him near the entrance to the venue. Vibes.

Old mate is currently working on his new project The Newport; a redevelopment of a historic venue with some pretty sweet views.

Not bad.

As per their website – “Guests can move through The Newport to enjoy a variety of food and drink – there will be wood-fired pizzas, Australian grass-fed beef burgers, seasonal salads, as well as a range of fresh juices, smoothies, milkshakes; and freshly-brewed coffee by Sydney roasters, Will & Co.”
