This is just part of the 'redevelopment' of the Queen Victoria Market. This quaint little strip of shops and small businesses may not be the epitome of elegant heritage architecture, but it represents character, history and smallness; the Doyle-dominated MCC wishes to replace these with a shopping mall experience which will be vast, soul-less and sterile, like the horrible crop of massive skyscrapers now towering over the market section of Elizabeth Street. This will represent only the victory of commercial interests/the profit motive over real people of Melbourne and their real, historic market. The Development-MCC-State Government nexus - apparently the only party in favour of this demolition/'redevelopment' - is bringing about the complete ruination of Melbourne. There is absolutely nothing in this demolition for ordinary citizens and QVM patrons; there are more than enough architectural abominations in the area of the market already. I have voted for the Greens at all levels of government; I hope that there is some way to prevent this atrocity and others to come.
