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

ADAM YEE commented

As a small business owner who has been based in the immediate area for the past decade, I strongly object to the demolition of the Alexandria Hotel. The need for progress and development in a highly desirable commercial area is understandable. However as the case of the Carriageworks precinct has displayed, it can be done without destroying iconic buildings.
Alexandria/Redfern is quickly becoming a soulless, vertical suburb with much of its character being scrubbed out of existence. The Alexandria is an oasis that is becoming a beacon for the fast-multiplying population. Rightly so. It has been there since the 1870's and retains its heritage and charm. In addition, its a family friendly venue. To destroy this local icon would be criminal. Once its gone, it is gone for good. Replaced by high-density housing that will create further traffic and congestion in the area.
I call upon the City Of Sydney to decline this application to demolish The Alexandria Hotel.
