Here you go Planning Minister Justin Madden. When you have finished with demolishing Art Deco buildings, you can start on Victorian Italianate. This one is in Acland Street, St Kilda. It is an ideal retail site with plenty of passing foot traffic and high population density. I am thinking perhaps a Dan Murphys grog shop.
Here is snip from Melbourne Heritage web site in reference to a public question time of the Minister.
Perhaps you could ask him what happened to the Eastern Arcade; why he authorised the demolition of the heritage listed Telegraph Offices on Little Bourke Street; why he overturned heritage listings to gut an art deco carpark (Melbourne’s oldest) on Little Collins Street; why he ignored Heritage Victoria and the National Trust and approved the demolition of Lonsdale House; why he has allowed towers to breach the height limits of heritage overlay areas or what his plans he has in store for the iconic Windsor Hotel on Spring Street.
Just waiting for your wrecking balls Jussy.
Seriously, no I was being serious, but what a stunning building!
