Going past yesterday it looked like a rough enough job done demolishing the warehouse structure behind the hanging gardens building – looking along the side of it one could see the brickwork quite a bit jagged at the back of the retained structure. The artists impression of the box planned behind it and the post office building is not inspiring.
Good to see that the site on the corner is to be redeveloped – the warehouse type building there at the moment is no loss. At least even if a bit overshadowed by whatever goes on the corner, the hanging gardens building will remain visible enough with the adjoining post office building remaining as it is on the streetfront. It would be good though to see a lower level on the Henry Street side of the corner to match the rest of the block which isn’t changing in height (also I presume the youth centre on the next block isn’t going anywhere soon either). Even four storeys would be better than five – the Hanging Gardens is actually close enough to three storeys rather than just two.
