In Eveleigh NSW on “Proposed demolition of the...” at 35 Henderson Road Eveleigh NSW 2015:

Rowena commented

I am opposed to the demolition of the beautiful, historic Alexandria Hotel to make way for more apartments in this rapidly (over)developing area. To let this go ahead will mean another piece of Sydney's history is irrevocably lost for the benefit of a few. The argument that the building's heritage value has been diminished by surrounding redevelopment is false and could be cut down by the simple adage: 'two wrongs don't make a right.' There may be other buildings in Sydney with relatively similar architecture but not in that area, and none with a 'U' shaped bar quite like the Alex. Please protect this site from cheap redevelopment so that it may remain lasting artifact of Alexandria's architectural history for future generations of Sydneysiders to enjoy.
