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

Chris Glen commented

The Alexandria is a beautiful, rare example of a early 20th century Sydney inner city pub. Demolishing it to be replaced by a "4 storey mixed use building. Building consists of 28 residential apartments, a commercial tenancy on the ground" will remove an iconic local landmark & community asset with a run of the mill new development.

As has been reported (below), I fail to see how the hotel is both "relatively common" & has how the "heritage value has been diminished by surrounding redevelopment." The latter is absolutely counter intuitive (newer developments reducing heritage value?), the first is unsubstantiated & frankly untrue as many of these buildings are irreversibly changed or developed from original use.

"Documents lodged in support of the development application acknowledge the building has historical value but argue its style of architecture is relatively common and that its heritage value has been diminished by surrounding redevelopment."
