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

Suzanne Sundin commented

The proposed demolition of this lovely old pub means the last standing building from the past on this side of Henderson Road will be gone.
For anyone who has seen the wonderful photos of the grand old buildings that once lined Henderson Road you can only shake your head in despair.
To bulldoze this iconic old pub is shameful, it should have been Heritage Listed many years ago.
It really is the last link with the days gone by, we will never ever get it back if the wrecking ball swings.
It provides a safe haven for families, football fans, residents who just want a quiet drink, and allows the community to conduct meetings in a quiet and really nice environment. The absence of gambling is also very refreshing.
As already mentioned, the lack of parking in the proposed replacement for The Alex could mean another 60 cars enter our already crowded streets.
I guess the trees, perfectly planted by someone with wonderful foresight, and no idea they would be cut down. These lovely gums form an avenue at the side of the beer garden will have to go to make way for these apartments, that in itself is a terrible shame.
Everything about this proposal is a tragedy for our wonderful community. I just hope sense can be seen in what will be awful for our community and the many who enjoy The Alex.
Communities come together because of places like The Alex. They are the heart and soul of the many Small villages of Sydney and when you are lucky enough to have a place like this it should be preserved,
