Barringtonâ€™s hospital had been extended a couple of years ago so are they now extending along Mary Street ? I think dave123 posted these two artists impressions (thumbnail size) of the new extension last year.
Barringtons House was originally built as a stand alone project, it was to house offices, a bar and restaurant(s),the take up was pretty slow and it has been empty for almost three years. However an application was submitted recently for a change of use to a clinic, a bit of a pity really as it would be nice to see another pub or restaurant along georges quay along with the locke and moll darbyâ€™s. Itâ€™s a very pleasant area (especially in the summer) with the mature trees and riverside setting!
The new building looks to be a huge disappointment, nowhere near the standard of Barringtons house which intregrates very well with the original hospital, this new structure looks like a return to mediocrity, with the latest in urban wallpaper. Barringtons is a protected Structure, so surely they could have been a bit more sensitive, hopefully itâ€™ll look better in reality, although I couldnâ€™t see it!
