    By building hotels here you need to provide lots of parking and public transport. Otherwise you will be putting lots of pressure on existing and future infrastructure. Yes there is already talk of metro services etc... but do they stack up against future growth??? Our services are already over capacity by a large margin.

    The design of the glass "box" addition also does not look right. Does not integrate well with the heritage elements of the building. It is too large and this "modern" "boxy" look cheapens and overpowers the building. Maybe it should be pitched instead and made shorter? But then it is profit margins over quality that rules in the end. Such a shame NSW.
