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

Christopher Hodges commented

The Alexandria Hotel is a wonderful building and a wonderful community amenity. As a local resident I witness the diverse users of the Alexandria who enjoy its social amenity and hospitality.

The architecture is unquestionably a superb example of its era and the only example in our area that remains intact inside and out.

It has been operated responsibly for the community for many years with no gambling, no disturbance on the local environment and no problem with drunken behaviour or violence.

There is a broad community use of the venue for meetings and social events and of course sporting events.

The building is an icon of the community, links well into technology park and the oval behind and sits proudly in excellent condition for its years.

It would be impossible to replace and doubtful a new building will have the architectural integrity classic example of its era. It is a working building too, a useful asset too good to demolish.
