Such a shame overall that a higher end residential development isn't happening here.
Yep. There is certainly an irony that 51 Pirie Street had its heritage protection removed because the 80s additions supposedly butchered it, but then the same planning commission turns around and allows this. Baffling.

So I spoke with someone from Synergy at work today, apparently the reason for the extensive gutting of this building is not asbestos (although they still have removed quite a bit) but rather that all the framework of the original building was termite ridden and structurally unstable. So all that will be left of this will be the facade (which we already know), and apparently the workmen on site are just glad to be able to save that much (I got the vibe that a lot of the Synergy workmen are softies for heritage preservation).

The development approval always involved the demolition of the internal structure. It only required that the floors and ceilings be rebuilt at the same level and reuse the original timber floorboards and ceiling where possible. The original cast-iron columns were of high heritage priority, from memory. More sympathetically, the vehicle access cut through the façade decades ago is to be removed and the original windows restored.

Can see straight through now and they’re digging a hole inside:

This development looks awful, I’m truly sad it’s going ahead, especially on North Terrace.
