I believe this would be another loss to Hobart's Heritage (even though it isn't listed). It depicts the architecture of the time and is still a good example, just needs a coat of paint and some general maintenance. To allow this to be demolished would be following in the footsteps of the destruction of beautiful old buildings in Battery Point (look at the monstrosities filling their space – Prince of Wales Hotel is a classic example of a bad taste build with a quick financial return) and replaced with ugly eyesores of building with no character. This is typical of investors after a quick return on their money. Don’t allow North Hobart go the same way please! The Planning Scheme is too lax at present.
