That would have been quiet an interesting project especially since I am all for keeping facades of old buildings at least and not demolishing the whole lot.

I just came across this album which I thought might be of interest. There are a number of 'never builts' and some old artist's impressions of other developments.

Great find! I can only imagine how much more open the Mall would feel. The southern side of North Terrace as it is today is so under-utilised too.

Thank you, sir. I was most pleased to find those Capital City images - it seemed to me as if all record of it had been erased. Until now.

Indeed, I have spent many hours searching for such images, but up to know it was all in vain.
