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

Dan Kra commented

I object to the demolition of the Alexandria Hotel building for the following reasons.

1: the council zoning of this site allows for a maximum of 2 stories and a maximum height of 9 metres. The application is for 4 stories and up to 17 metres at the highest point! This is a massive increase over the allowance.
2: the significant heritage value of the hotel. The development application’s Heritage Impact Statement mentions 6 other similar hotels in Sydney, all of which are heritage listed. I believe that it is an oversight that the Alexandria Hotel isn’t already listed and are requesting council grant an interim heritage order to stop any damage being done to the hotel while a formal application is undertaken.
3: the enormous social & community importance of the hotel as an open meeting space in an increasingly population-dense area.
4: the complete lack of parking included for new residents.
