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

Lee Roche commented

I object to the development proposal on the site of the Alexandria Hotel.

I am all for redevelopment of the inner urban areas of Sydney and in particular the re-zoning of industrial and commercial land in Redfern, Alexandria and Zetland for residential use. However, with all the new people coming to live in the area, social institutions such as the Alexandria Hotel must be preserved. These places are part of our cultural capital and cannot be replaced with sterile new buildings. We must preserve them for new residents and existing residents alike.

The demolition of this building is an outrage. I do not blame the owner for trying this on but the City of Sydney must not let it proceed.
