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

Kim Osman commented

I've lived in the Parramatta area my whole life, I remember when the Roxy was a movie theatre, I remember when it turned into a live concert venue, I also remember it being a nightclub facility. To turn it into yet another office tower, of all glass and a replica of so many that are being built in the Parramatta CBD is re-development gone horribly corrupt and wrong. To have another historic performance venue ripped down or re-developed into something it's not is just poor form. Parramatta itself does not have any real venues for live music/stage performances with character (Riverside only caters to some genres and definitely does not have historic character) - to see any live music or other stage performance we all need to trek into the city (think Enmore Theatre). With so much being built in Parramatta, doesn't the city deserve a small part of it's old self nestled in there and hopefully be re-opened for everyone to enjoy - not just the developers with money being made for office space!
