In West Perth WA on “Demolition of existing...” at 28-44 Cowle Street, West Perth, WA, 6005:

Simon commented

This building may have been neglected and is run down in its current state, but it's a solid, structurally sound building. It's a Victorian era, Georgian style building with a bold and unique heritage character. I haven't seen another quite like this in Perth. Especially with the long convex verandah. It adds character to the street scape and to the charm and 'sense of place' for the area. It should be restored and preserved for these reasons. There is a large block of land and plenty of room to develop on the site while keeping the existing building. Demolition of this building would be irresponsible to the community and future development of this street, for reasons of preserving its character, sense of place, heritage and long term investment of properties in this area. I believe in this case the councillors should recommend to the owners and developers that the demolition of this building should be avoided and it should be restored instead.
