Looks like 33-35 Queens Ave Hawthorn is due for demolition if the developer and builders get their way. :angry:

That should be heritage listed. More of our history gone to greedy developers.

Make it a Torana museum.

You're not wrong James, personally i think it should be re sign written back to the HDT heritage scheme, there would be someone who would be happy to pay good money to have it just like it was then, i would have thought ?

Yep, or restore it and make it into a Torana mecca, coffee shop etc....and work your arse off for 20 years to break even. The prices of any near CBD / inner suburb real estate these days means …..subdivide/ redevelop/ apartments etc...simples.

It is a real shame.  But I bet the staff back in the day were happy when they moved to Levison Street. They wouldn't have to worry about busting front spoilers any more.

Hard to tell from one pic #9 but unless that is the top floor (which i doubt with a front door opening) then it isn't going to get to six levels as per the permit.  Cheers Ron

The plans provide for a retail and office development. Not going to qualify as

an enhancement to our urban environment, but they call that progress.

Well it's clear from those drawings that the pic in post #9 does not reflect what is going to happen to the site, sadly. Cheers Ron
