In Parramatta NSW on “Development Application -...” at 69 George Street Parramatta NSW 2150:

Raymond Ho commented

I believe the Roxy Hotel to be of significant heritage for future generations of the young and old interested in culture and architecture.
This type of building is one of the few examples 'art deco' and in its time was labelled as a symbol of construction in its day.
This will never be replicated in books and should remain a living treasure for all to be able touch and see with their own eyes.
Commercially its life cycle may have had its use, but I see many future opportunities for it, maybe as a potential museum site, it certainly would be a highlight on any visitors walking tour.
There are so many high rises in Parramatta some fantastic, some not so, but for Parramatta to retain its character and history, I do believe this is one building that should not be destroyed so its intrinsic value appreciated by all.

Please reconsider any plans for new construction.
I have no commercial interests to disclose.
