    This heritage listed building has been closed and looked very run down for years. It looks like it has had a facelift and a new lease on life. As a commuter who travels to Pyrmont every day for work i look forward to the rebirth of this building as a public space.

  2. Lester Lambert commented

    As a resident of the City of Sydney, I believe this is an AMAZING plan to revitalize this heritage listed building. This positive development will bring more jobs to the City, in a time that it is needed in COVID 19 Recovery!

  3. Garry Silk commented

    This is an extremely appropriate public use for the former Arrow Dive building, offering spectacular harbour views to the north framed for the most part by heritage buildings (Jones Bay Wharf to the west and the former REVY complex to the east).

    This location has great potential to be a destination for pedestrians (and cyclists) on the harbourside walkway linking the CBD and Blackwattle Bay (and then points further west). This walkway was part of the original plans in the 1990's but in this spot has not really been achieved because it was owned by the Commonwealth. The recently publicised framework for a denser Pyrmont/Ultimo reiterates the desire to achieve the harbourside walkway. I would encourage Council to give consent to this use and in the future to work with the applicant and NSW agencies to achieve an improved (and wider) walkway interface with the water in this area, to the benefit of all.

  4. Nicholas Zappacosta commented

    As someone who is in the process of moving to Pyrmont and works in Sydney CBD, I walk past this building often. The building in a beautiful location, but it is dilapidated and closed to the public.

    I would love to see new life breathed into the building with this development proposal. This will give the public the opportunity to experience the wonderful heritage of this building and site.

  5. Hussain Azad commented

    I believe this is a good opportunity to start a fresh in a way to bring people together. I am sure this building can keep its true heritage whilst getting a cosmetic uplift! People will appreciate this site and it can bring more awareness and recognition to its history.

  6. Ravi commented

    From past 10 years I have been walking to work from in front of this building it always been closed and dirty from outside .. from past couple of months it has been changed and came into lime light as we can see someone is trying to maintain this heritage Building .. it’s look fresh from outside now and give you positive vibes .. it’s good to see people are investing in Pyrmont .. hope it will increase work for people after all this pandemic ...feeling Positive ..

  7. Philip Iacovou commented

    As a Building Management Company we manage sites all over Sydney. Pyrmont is an area we have been working in for a while and is filled with history and numerous landmarks that attracts people and brings life to the area. It's a shame that such a beautiful site like this has not been used in such a long time but also better late than never to see that while they are trying to preserve the structure, I'm really looking forward to seeing this heritage listed building with a fresh and vibrant look. This will definitely bring people in embracing the true value of this site and the history behind it.

  8. Orget Sadiku commented

    The current planning framework is decades old and reflects a time when Pyrmont started it's transformation from an industrial precinct to what is today.
    The framework needs to be updated to reflect that it is now a legitimate part of Sydney CBD.

    This amazing development will be a great addition for Pyrmont and it will add definitely greater diversity of employment and better connectivity with the rest of the City of Sydney.

  9. Donogh Gethings commented

    It would be a shame not to see this beautiful old building get an extended life in this incredible location in Pyrmont. In a difficult time for the hospitality industry, the idea that more jobs can be created by Doltone house for this venue is very positive too.

  10. Nadia Obeid commented

    This would be an excellent opportunity for improving the area at JBW as it grows into a buzzing spot in the City of Sydney.

    We believe that Doltone house have achieved extreme improvement for the neighboring areas with such adequacy and care for the area.

    We fully support the application. Of course this will provide future employment in the area as well.
    Always in support and recognition for those who build for the better.

  11. Sam strada commented

    As someone who works & sometimes lives in the great city of Sydney, I applaud this opportunity of creating a beautiful space to retreat to. Creating jobs during this difficult Covid time is essential for our growth as a city & for the mental health of those who are fortunate enough to call this work place their own. Congratulations to the applicant applying for such a magnificent space for all Sydney siders and tourists to enjoy.

  12. Ben Gullo commented

    I walk past this building quite often and noticed how dilapidated it is. I think it would be a shame to not share it with the public after a facelift. I would love to be a guest and enjoy the heritage of this wonderful building. I think it is fantastic that Doltone House are even considering this during these tough times and well done to them.

  13. Fred Sari commented

    Every time I walk past this building i think it was abandon. I am very excited to see this re open with Doltone House and bring life to the street. I cant wait till it opens to show my support specifically in these tough times. Well done Doltone House.

  14. Alistair MacDougall commented

    Very much looking forward to this heritage building getting new lease of life and actually being used and enjoyed by the public! Seem a pity to have it underultilized.

  15. V Placanica commented

    As an architect working in the CBD & Pyrmont areas, I believe that Council should support this application. Revitalization of heritage buildings is essential in keeping such buildings for our future generations. After reviewing the current application and plans I can only see this proposal improving not only the building but improving the immediate precinct, as well as providing amenity to the foreshore area and allowing people to interact with and further appreciate the fabric of Sydney's built heritage.

  16. Michael Cole commented

    It would be great to see this building actually be used for a purpose that the people of Sydney, locals as well as interstate and international guests, will be able to use. It's a great location in a hub that is more and more being used by the public with more and more people visiting the area for business. I run along that road almost every weekend and would be great to see that building in use.

  17. Nel Esteban commented

    How thrilling it is to see a run down building causing some eye sore to be alive again and give a lively vibrant in the heart of Pyrmont! Proposal of renovations like this are really needed to attract people not only around from Sydney but also from across the country and around the world. Creating a space not only as an addition to Sydney's ever growing culture in hospitality but also create more options for patrons to favour and support.     

  18. Elie Chahine commented

    I Believe the rebirth of this building will bring some more liveliness to Pyrmont. I work along the Wharf and walk past this location everyday. I believe this will be a great addition to the local business network.
    It will be a great opportunity for employment opportunity especially after the recent pandemic resulting in Job loss.
    It would also be great to see the public being able to access a beautiful heritage building such as this one.

  19. Veronica De Poi commented

    As someone who has lived in Pyrmont and also works there I have walked past this building many times. Previously, it was dilapidate with broken winds in an otherwise beautiful part of Pyrmont. I believe this is a fantastic addition to the Pyrmont local community and will continue to make the area a thriving hub of activity. A location such as this will attract not only local but interstate and international guests as well.

  20. Leonard Bongiovanni commented

    I believe this proposal should be supported. The opportunity to provide the community a quality venue while retaining the heritage importance is something which should be commended. The applicant is well-regarded and having regard to their quality and track record, this would be another stellar venue.

  21. Paul Sabatini commented

    I work in the local area and often in Pyrmont for meetings with clients and lunch with friends.
    It would be great to see this building revitalised and available for use by the public as a great restaurant, providing a gathering place and employment for the local community!
    I support this proposal fully and cant wait to become a patron.

  22. Andrew Blanda commented

    I walk past this building every day believe it is a great addition to increasing the business in and around that area of Pyrmont. This is a great way to give an historic building a new lease on life as the building looked derelict a while ago. Having this available for hospitality purposes fits well with other hospitality options in the precinct and will help attract more visitors to Pyrmont.

  23. Vick Daniel commented

    I absolutely love this building, and this building being used for a restaurant will be an amazing addition to gorgeous pyrmont.

    It will create employment, tourism, and an all round great place to enjoy a great meal.

    I support this 100%

  24. Steve Napier commented

    I think this would be a great development for the Pyrmont area. Will definitely revitalise the area.

  25. Godfrey Franz commented

    It is really great to see this final little corner of Pyremont get tidied up to match the beautiful buildings on each side of it. I had a peek inside, this will become an outstanding high quality venue

  26. David La greca commented

    This would be an Great opportunity for improving the area at JBW as it grows into And up-and-coming in the City of Sydney.
    Every time I walk past this building i think it was abandon. I am very happy to see this re open with Doltone House and bring life to the street. I cant wait till it opens to show my support specifically in these tough times. Well done Doltone House keep it up.

  27. Sam Cannizzo commented

    Working in the Pyrmont area as a landscape contractor, I’ve made note of the older heritage buildings that are in need of refurbishment. This one in particular is in a great spot and to see it being brought back to life will only add value to the area. Both residents and visitors.to the area will benefit and in turn it will create more work opportunities in hospitality and other related industries considering how much this industry has suffered in recent times with COVID. Moreover

  28. Norman Sarraf commented

    This is EXACTY what is needed in the current climate. The more we can support the hospitality industry which is the lifeblood of the economy the more we should and cut the red tape so we can get back to the ‘normal’ we all knew. I applaud companies creating opportunities in this climate and so should our elected officials.

  29. Joe moussa commented

    It’s great to see this building have another lease of life. The restaurant will bring much needed character and job prospect to the area. I support this application and can’t wait to be a patron

  30. Steven Cesarano commented

    Another amazing transformation of a unique Sydney site. The restaurant use will not only breathe new life to this once derelict structure, but actually introduce a much needed use to the space.
    I often frequent the Pyrmont area to facilitate my clients and am constantly seeking new conducive spaces to meet and conduct business. The rejuvenation of this space provides an ideal and unique location to meet and celebrate this aspect of Sydney Harbour, generating renewed interest in the area and creating much needed jobs for a significant sector of our economy that has been immensely impacted in 2020.

  31. Vince Milazzo commented

    With the deversrating effect of Covid and the strain it’s plagued the hospitality industry. It’s great the see businesses wanting to open up & reignite our city. New ventures Leeds to more jobs for our local community. This location is a plus for Pyrmont locals, I look forward to the opening.

  32. Con commented

    I think it’s an amazing opportunity for the local area and believe it will add to the amazing vibe we already have. Can’t wait for this development to be finished I have 5 children who would all love to work in our local area, instead of venturing into the suburbs. Especially now after Covid-19 I think we need to focus On building our community strength and belief to what it was before 2020.

  33. Stuart Rodriguez commented

    It would be great to finally see this building come to life, it’s exactly what this side of Pyrmont needs.

  34. Neil kharal commented

    It’s great work to bringing abandon building In to a life specially when it’s heritage.I saw this building first time in 2008. Now seeing this old bakery house with lots story behind it coming forward to tell us as new modern restaurant that awesome. It’s good for economic and community. Can’t wait to book a table.

  35. A.K BARZEGAR commented

    opening the business in such amazing locality spot is fabulous. It’s good to see this heritage building brings more life to our suburb Pyrmont and also support our economy as well.
    I cant wait till it opens to show my support specifically in these tough times.

  36. Shubhankar Basak commented

    Heritage buildings are witnesses to the aesthetic and cultural history of a city, helping to give people a sense of place and connection to the past.

    Jones bay wharf has been a landmark of attraction since its existence. The motion of its cosmetic uplift will definitely help in creating more jobs in this time of recession and; Moreover, will help the tourists and longtime residents to witness and connect to the aesthetic and cultural history of Pyrmont, Sydney.

  37. Neil kharal commented

  38. Steffan Ippolito commented

    What a great application. Pyrmont needs more of this. An old
    Abandoned building being brought back to life

  39. Milos Krstic commented

    As someone who is working in Pyrmont, I walk past this building often. It would be great to see this building revitalised and available for use by the public, which will become a great gathering place and provide an experience of this heritage building and employment for the community. I support this application.

  41. John Triantis commented

    I am a local Chiropractor is Pyrmont who loves to dine in style - would love to see this heritage building be put to good use while still holding it's character and presence. Public access to this building would allow for the locals to gather and create a new vibe in that part of town.

    I see it as an opportunity for the unfortunate people who lost jobs during the hard times of COVID to get back into the work force. As well as allowing cash flow to be pumped back into the local economy.

    Bring this building back to life!

  42. Ameen Ayoub commented

    This is an excellent proposal not only for the area but for hospitality industry itself. Couldn’t think of a better company then Doltone House to make this happen. A family run business with high standards always thinking of community needs. Looking forward to seeing the magic unfold.

  43. Zena Nasser commented

    I live and work in Sydney and too many times I have had to explain to my young daughter why old buildings have been left derelict and run down. I have nothing but support of the activation of our city and this proposal does exactly that. It is in the public and community interests to approve this application. It generates jobs, amenities and the aesthetics of the facade are exactly what this building needs to bring it to life.

  44. John Fildissis commented

    This would be a massive improvement to the existing run down heritage building. Couldn’t think of a better company than the family run Doltone House to make this happen. They have very high standards across a number of locations and will no doubt make a positive contribution to the local community and amenity.

  45. Peter Mustaca commented

    Great application. Abandon building brought back. It would not only be good for the area but would creat jobs. I support this application

  46. Tony Zannino commented

    I am a photographer and would really love to see this heritage building be repurposed into a fantastic opportunity for the local community.
    This proposal will reward the area with innovation, expertise and quality as all these factors contribute to the delivery of a great building proposal.
    I should also mention that this proposal will provide employment opportunities which are needed in these difficult times.

  47. Tony Licastro commented

    I for one support the proposal. The subject property looks run down and a new public eatery designed with heritage aspect will improve the area and no doubt liven up the area. The Doltone Group have displayed tremendous attributes towards the Pyrmont area and have full confidence that they will continue with this proposed site.

  48. Joseph Tigani commented

    This is a great proposal not only for the hospitality industry, but for the surrounding Pymont area. The City of Sydney is renowned for it hospitality industry and culture and the building would be a fitting gem to its location.

  49. Phill Bates AM commented

    I am sure if Neville Wran was alive he would have supported the application, after all it was his vision to transform Walsh Bay and Pyrmont to what it is today. Signorelli family is one of the most distinguished families in the hospitality and cannot wait for the transformation of this historic building. Staged many great international events at Pyrmont, Darling Harbour and around Walsh Bay and we need facilities like what has been proposed

  50. Jane Bennett commented

    From the early 1980s to the end of the 1990s I was ‘Artist in Residence’ at many Pyrmont sites, including REVY & Jones Bay Wharf, & painted Pyrmont as it was radically transformed from a neglected industrial wasteland.
    Before its recent refurbishment Arrow Dive had been an eyesore -very down at heel & dilapidated. Now the building’s architecture manages to combine modernity while retaining the greatest respect & sympathy for the complex & fascinating history of Pyrmont’s industrial heritage as possible.
    It would be marvellous to have this rare Sydney Harbour waterfront gem accessible to the public, so that they can absorb the living history & spectacular harbour views while having a delicious meal. This would be so much more appropriate, useful & creative than the building being locked away as a private office or apartment. I look forward to the rebirth of this building as a public space & urge the Council to fully support the application.

  51. Sukdeb kundu commented

    I am crossing this building last 12 years and what i see from outside is an old rustic building. I think this is an absolutely great idea to rebirth this heritage site and bring the community together. Also, it’s create more job for the community during this devastating time.

  52. Angelo Castronovo & Joe Oliveri commented

    An amazing opportunity to restore such a beautiful site and allow another generation to enjoy a beautiful part of the city, while at the same time creating new jobs and opportunities for so many people and give back to the community an amazing venue where so many people can create memories to cherish for ever

  53. Frank Bobaccorsi commented

    This is a great opportunity to bring the community together and inject a breath of fresh air into the neighbourhood. I definitely support these plans!

  54. Jason Ribar commented

    This location has been begging to have a purpose for decades. I have walked past this site hundreds if not thousands of times and thought it had been a an old storage facility for council purposes.

    This building has great potential in becoming an amazing landmark for locals and visitors alike.

    As a resident of Sydney I fully support this application and urge the council to endorse a new beginning to a site that in desperate need of repair, restoration and refurbishment.

    My family and I cannot wait to visit, dine and stroll around this site upon completion.

  55. Anna Cesarano commented

    The recent announcement by NSW Govt to stimulate the Pyrmont precinct to a 24hr economy is a much welcomed announcement. 2020 has been very difficult for businesses and the recovery will take years, especially for hospitality. This is just a small step to contribute and reinvigorate what once was a derelict area.
    Many hospitality businesses will not survive 2020 and it is imperative that the Government has identified the need for stimulus and boost for these businesses by a cultural transformation for Sydney. This project supports the underlying covid 19 recovery plan developed by the City of Sydney and NSW government and reinvigorate facilities for consumers and keep hospitality businesses alive!

  56. Sally Poggio commented

    Being a local resident I support the opening of this heritage building that has been closed and forgotten

    I have lived in Pyrmont since 2003

    Most of Pyrmont’s waterfront buildings are owned privately without public access

    This application will allow locals to use the space for dining whilst enjoying the interior

    I also support Lord Mayor Clover Moore which said alfresco dining will help reinvigorate city life and allow venues to keep their doors open longer.

    "Encouraging outdoor dining makes it easier for us to enjoy those things and support local businesses while maintaining a safe physical distance," the Mayor said.

    I support local businesses and investment in my local area

    I hope it will be an italian restaurant which is much needed in our area

  57. Mario Karam commented

    Walking past this building each and every day, I just wondered of its past story and its future potential.

    I support the rebirth of this historic building that will bring together famliy and friends to create new memories.

  58. John ORiordan commented

    I was listening to 2GB on the 14th September 2020 and heard that the NSW Government were releasing a strategy for reinvigorating Sydney night time economy in the wake of COVID 19 restrictions having severely impacted local hospitality,

    NSW tourism minister Stuart Ayres said the goal now is more important than ever .

    So I don't see how this project could not go ahead.
    All the best .

  59. Steve Naamo commented

    As a resident of Sydney I fully support this application and urge the council to endorse a new beginning to a site that in desperate need of repair, restoration and refurbishment.
    I cannot wait to bring my family to visit and enjoy a new experience as Pyrmont needs to have diversity and new restaurants always bring that ..

  60. Tony Rizzotto commented

    I travel to the city 3 times a week and see that this beautiful old building needs a boost of life in this incredible location in Pyrmont. These are crazy times for the hospitality industry, the idea that more jobs can be created by pillars of the hospitality Doltone house for this venue are very positive to say the least.

  61. Terry Sleiman commented

    Living on the same street as this proposed development, I have often walked past this piece of historic Sydney, and wondered when such a pristine site will be brought back to life. I truly believe this DA is exactly what is needed and is in keeping not only with the Councils recently proclaimed “vision” for Pyrmont, but retains the areas heritage and past.
    I say bring it on, the sooner, the better.

  62. anthony catanzariti commented

    A great location. To work in well with other major developments in that close proximity, knowing Doltone house, and the professional way they approach all aspects of developments it will be a tremendous asset to people in this great city. I believe it will be a great dining experience with absolutely amazing views.

  63. Joseph Carrozzi commented

    I fully endorse this proposal. A F&B setting in the Pyrmont precinct is so important for the community. The Doltone House group is one of the most respected brands in Sydney and their focus on the community is gold standard. I hope this proposal is approved.

  64. Peter MCGregor commented

    I hope that an investment and vision such as this can be supported. Great to breathe life back into this waterfront edge, and done so well. Great track record of proponent and architects.

  65. Manuel Spinola commented

    As a business owner within the CBD of Sydney I am hugely supportive of this DA. This beautiful heritage building will be brought to life and enjoyed by the residents of Sydney for many years to come. Doltone House are a well respected Hospitality Group and a market leader will manage this asset in a professional, balanced and thoughtful manner. The hospitality industry has disproportionately suffered during the COVID pandemic and supporting this DA where a disused asset is revitalised , where enterprise is supported and jobs created is absolutely a win for the local community.

  66. Jackson Jarvis commented

    This is exciting to hear that new life will be breathed into this otherwise neglected property. I am across the road and always wondered why it hasnt been put to use yet. In times like this anything to help improve the local trade and nightlife for our city I wholeheartedly stand behind and hope this is approved. Will be nice to have a new place in walking distance to visit other than the casino.

  67. Joe Milazzo commented

    Heritage sites and buildings can have a very positive influence on many aspects of the way a community develops. The ongoing redevelopment and upkeep of heritage buildings undertaken by Doltone House has assured economic growth and community engagement Within the Pyrmont district. Heritage buildings add an environmental advantage of reuse over new buildings and maximise character to the precinct. Intern thus positive contributions to the overall facade of the area has been made benefiting all.

  68. John Demarte commented

    This building is in desperate need of some TLC and in the hands of the Dolton Group, only good can come from it. We look forward to see what comes from it.

  69. Con Dedes commented

    I totally support the application for the use of this deserted building. As a fellow hospitality operator we fully endorse Doltone House to bring this building and part of Pyrmont to life.

    It will be great for the community and thankfully we will have world class operators to be the custodians.

  70. Caitlin Lila commented

    What an excellent proposal and opportunity to breath new life into what should be such a beautiful building, but has been derelict (and an eye sore) for too long.
    Working in Pyrmont and walking past this building most days, it is a fantastic opportunity to continue revitalising not only the Pyrmont precinct and community, but also the hospitality industry by creating more jobs, attracting more visitors and adding to this rejuvenated and vibrant community.

  71. Nina Milazzo commented

    Working in the Pyrmont district for the past 18 years has been an absolute blessing . The transformation of a once sleepy precinct has become vibrant hub . To be greeted every morning along my path of historically buildings in Prymont I am in awe. I am in full support of Revy Building it will provide growth in employment , it encourages the enhancement of the existing Neighboourhood and infrastructures as up until a few months back it was in a state of decay . Bringing it back to its former glory is such a positive feeling as I continue my path to my workplace every day as well as being a proud community citizen.

  72. Carmela Signorelli commented

    I fully support this exciting application for building 34 Pirrama Road. Having worked in this beautiful Harbour suburb for over 15 years I have seen Pyrmont emerge from its shipping port origins into a friendly and vibrant inner city suburb. But it still has a village feel as much of the heritage has been tastefully retained.

    Preserving, restoring and enhancing this heritage building will be an asset to the Pyrmont community. Revitalizing the building will add character and charm, enhance neighborhood pride, and foster a strong cultural identity among generational residents in the Pyrmont area.

    It will contribute to an improved quality of life that helps retain existing residents, attract new investment, create a positive economic benefit and jobs for Pyrmont. It will also attract visitors, new residents, and investment.

    I look forward to the rebirth of building 34 Pirrama Road as a public space and encourage the Council to give consent to this use.

  73. John Panebianco commented

    As one of Sydney's favourite locations that I frequently visit with my family and friends,
    A proposal to revive & renew this neglected site ,in the capable hands of The Doltone House group ,will exceed above & beyond creating a new & appreciated attraction for the area. In such an iconic & historical part of Pyrmont it is with no doubt new life , activity & productivity will be achieved.What a great opportunity to improve & transform this building into something most pleasing to our eyes & addIng value to the area. This is definitely a positive step forward offering the locals & visitors an enjoyable , historical & dining experience!

  74. Michael Tijono commented

    Being an active resident of Sydney commuting to and from the site, I support the uplift of the heritage site. With the potential benefits for environmental and economic growth I believe the site begs for a fresh start. With its prime location it would be a great shame for its spectacular harbour view to go to waste.

  75. Phillipa Signorelli commented

    I passionately support this application! I am excited to see this transcending building be transformed as it is a rare surviving example of a waterside naval store.

    Having frequently visiting the area growing up, I love the heritage buildings in the local Pyrmont community. It adds great significance to the area and they are an amazing attraction for everyone to enjoy and take in while being in the heart of Pyrmont, creating a lively and dynamic element.

    I am eager to see this building open to the public as a waterfront restaurant which is located in the perfect spot!

  76. Angelo Militano commented

    The proposal for 34 Pirrama Road for Pyrmont not only ensures that this tired old building is restored to its former glory but also sees it opened up to the public for the very first time.
    Having worked in the Pyrmont area it is clear to me that both the local residents and business community will benefit from the addition of a restaurant at this location.
    The proposal for 34 Pirrama Road will be a valuable addition to the Pyrmont Foreshore area and therefore I fully support the proposal.

  77. Zoran Dimovski commented

    This should be of a paramount of importance for the council's consideration to approve this application - that is at once a highly positive construct to our immediate social exposure and experience as a addition to our beloved city of Sydney.

  78. Juan Paulo Martinez commented

    I am regularly in the Pyrmont Area due to work and also as I consistently jog around the Wharf areas.

    Having a new, refreshed Restaurant would be an amazing addition to the area, especially as a Restaurant to enjoy the beautiful water front views. The previous building had a great deal of wear and tear and rejuvenating the heritage aesthetic would invigorate an already beautiful and historic area.

  79. Onofrio Lopreiato commented

    I Run past this complex Most Sunday mornings, and to have a great building to keep its heritage integrity, really is appreciated by all past goers.
    Creating Jobs and having a great Vibe where we could enjoy the view while still being apart of historic heritage would be great for the area. Food, wine and great company only creates memories which can be bought.

    Lets embrace Sydney and lets get Sydney Open AGAIN

  80. Ray Tahan commented

    Lets not do Sydney a disservice by not giving this place the love that it needs. If we can give it the facelift it needs, then its a step in the right direction. Lets get it happening and lets bring Sydney back to life.

  81. Maria Savvides commented

    This proposal at 34 Pirrama Road Pyrmont would not only rejuvenate this tired old heritage site but create much need jobs and reinvigorate Pyrmont as a foodies’ choice for great food and great ambience. My Sunday morning walks will no longer be pinged with sadness walking bust this beautiful but tired building.... instead I look forward to regularly walking past and being reminded of our beautiful history. Can’t wait to see this Phoenix rise from the Ashes!

  82. Helen Liu commented

    Pyrmont is a beautiful location on Sydney Harbour and would be amazing if there were more attractions in this suburb, especially F&B! I used to walk past the Arrow Marine Diving building on my commute to work and always wondered why such a unique heritage building was kept closed and neglected. This proposal sounds like great revival for this historic architecture to be enjoyed by the public and create more jobs in the hospitality industry.

    At last someone has the foresight to restore this lovely old building. As a business person working in the Pyrmont area, I have walked past in despair that it has been empty for all these years. The intended future use will provide more waterfront amenity to the locality, local jobs for local people and a more pleasant, continuous waterfront usage for the precinct. In these Covid times more outdoor amenity and dinning establishments are needed and should be encouraged.

    As a resident of a suite we would be thrilled to see the rejuvenation of the venue and fully support this development.

  85. Jules Spiris commented

    I believe this would be an incredible addition to the local area, the building has been tired and forgotten about for as long as I have been working in Pyrmont and it is exciting to hear that it will given a new lease of life and opportunities for more jobs particularly in these uncertain times!

  86. Alia Burt commented

    Such a great space to transform and bring back to life! I walk past this building regularly for work - and have often thought what a shame it is to leave it unoccupied and run down, when it could be such an enticing addition to this wonderful corner of the city!
    We should 100% be backing local businesses that are wanting to improve the hospitality scene, especially after these difficult times!

  87. Diana Imtiaz commented

    I am fully supporting this application. I work in Pyrmont and I see this building all the time. It looks sad, lonely and abandoned. With it's prime location, it should be playing a major role in promoting Pyrmont's lovely harbour views and vibrant community! I believe the makeover will just do that.

  88. Brendon Dulke commented

    I support this exciting proposal for 34 Pirrama Rd and look forward to it's completion. For years this building was looking like a haunted abandoned structure on the darkest section of the street where.... if you were superstitious ..you would possibly cross the road to avoid walking past.
    But imagining it as a restored, thriving restaurant/venue would give it a new lease of life and let it be properly appreciated for the amazing location that it is and surely create more jobs for the community and raise the profile of Pyrmont even more.

  89. Nick Blaxell commented

    The building in question has been dilapidated for many years. It is in a prime location in Pyrmont and with the proposed rejuvenation, will create jobs for the area and bring the area to life. A lovely heritage site brought back to its former glory for the use of patrons and public access. I fully support this development.

    This would be fantastic to have a classy, beautiful resteraunt from the wonderful staff of Doltone house.

    Hi

    We need more activation uses like this by experienced operators as is the applicant. The building is in need of an uplift and the applicant is more than capable to deliver and would be a great addition to the area

    Thanks

    I work in Pyrmont and often walk past this building. I believe this development will not only bring this dilapidated building back to life but also create more job opportunities in the area. I fully support this application.

  93. Peter Semaa commented

    A great opportunity to revitalise the building and create job opportunities within a sector that's been severely impacted over the past several months.

    This will be another quality facility managed by a quality company that have an exceptional track record on delivering above expectations.

  94. Jann Zappacosta commented

    I would like to give my support to this development application. As an owner of premises in the CBD of Sydney I wholeheartedly support the adaptive reuse of the building known as “Arrow Marine” to be a fantastic restaurant overlooking the water at Pyrmont. I sincerely hope the council grants permission and I will look forward to having such a wonderful venue for entertaining clients and enjoying a once unused part of the Sydney waterfront being made available for the use of the public.
    Yours sincerely,
    Jann Zappacosta

    Working in Pyrmont for 5 years, and walking past this site on a regular basis weekly, it would be amazing to see this run-down site brought back to life and add to its long history!

  97. Juan Paulo Martinez commented

    I am regularly in the Pyrmont Area due to work and also as I consistently jog around the Wharf areas.

    Having a new, refreshed Restaurant would be an amazing addition to the area, especially as a Restaurant to enjoy the beautiful water front views. The previous building had a great deal of wear and tear and rejuvenating the heritage aesthetic would invigorate an already beautiful and historic area.

  98. John Edmonds commented

    It will be great to see this run down building restored and add character and give the face lift it needs and turn the area into an awesome location and rebuild from a hard year and become a s place for all to be proud

  99. Carmela Signorelli commented

    I fully support this exciting application for building 34 Pirrama Road. Having worked in this beautiful Harbour suburb for over 15 years I have seen Pyrmont emerge from its shipping port origins into a friendly and vibrant inner city suburb. But it still has a village feel as much of the heritage has been tastefully retained.

    Preserving, restoring and enhancing this heritage building will be an asset to the Pyrmont community. Revitalizing the building will add character and charm, enhance neighborhood pride, and foster a strong cultural identity among generational residents in the Pyrmont area.

    It will contribute to an improved quality of life that helps retain existing residents, attract new investment, create a positive economic benefit and jobs for Pyrmont. It will also attract visitors, new residents, and investment.

    I look forward to the rebirth of building 34 Pirrama Road as a public space and encourage the Council to give consent to this use.

    A great idea and concept to add to the vibe of the growing and changing area.
    The more caliber of this sort of development, the better our city will be.

  101. Theresia Ullio commented

    The plans and application will be a great addition to the Pyrmont precinct and the community. This is a great transformation to a heritage building that will be appreciated by the people that attend and go to the building. I trust that Doltone House will take care of this building with pride like all of the other venues they operate. This is a great opportunity to bring the economy back from COVID for the hospitality industry.

    I am crossing this building last 12 years and what i see from outside is an old rustic building. I think this is an absolutely great idea to rebirth this heritage site and bring the community together. Also, it’s create more job for the community during this devastating time.
