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

Neil McRae commented

It makes me really sad to think that The Alex will be demolished. I have very fond memories of this place going back decades. I really can't believe it will be gone. I thought it would have been heritage listed. This is a real community gathering spot where the sense of local history is tangible. I understand the need for more homes in the area but this place should be off limits to developers. I met my partner at this pub. He would turn in his grave if he knew what was planned. Buildings are buildings but this place has a soul and it contributes strongly to the character and vibe of the neighbourhood. There are so few commercial heritage buildings left in the area, and none that are so open to the public. This is a special space. I will feel very empty inside every time I walk past this corner if this beloved pub is destroyed. Please, please reconsider.
