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

Kennie Ward commented

This precinct is one that is developing rapidly and although the there may be a need for housing to meet this growth, it is so often the case that construction takes place quickly before much forethought is given to the future of the community, in terms of its use, it's design and what will make it an interesting and valuable part of our city going forward.
Alexandria/Redfern is already a cultural hub with a sense of diversity and history, with a close proximity to the city - this is part of what makes it so attractive to visitors and residents. It would be a shame to fill the area with new developments if these come at the cost of losing historic buildings. Any precinct can be developed with the new - but there are few that have the ability to preserve a sense of history, while remaining current. By all means allow the area to grow, but I ask that we do this by integrating old and new. We need to plan ahead to keep this area a vibrant and interesting one, for the future of our city and its visitors, or it will become just another over-developed suburb.
