Good, If we demolish everything old or all the stuff we don’t like you just end up with something like Bowden that is almost completely devoid of any record of the past history of the area.
I agree with your sentiment, but not sure about using Bowden as your example as there is much that has/is being retained.

The Harbours Building development is a breath of fresh air. Finally a developer that wants to maintain and celebrate a buildings original features. Can't wait to see the 1970's inspired interior. I love this era and have always said it never goes out of a fashion.

I'm not the biggest fan of brutalism, but this hotel is a great idea. If done well it could become one of the more interesting hotels in the country, and I imagine many fans of unique architecture will travel just to stay in it.

I'm more interested to see what they do with the exterior then the interior. The interior will be fine, it's a hotel, they'd have to try really hard to screw that up.

I think the point is that the exterior won't be changed (not to say it might not need some restoration work and a clean). Perhaps they'll remove some of the rooftop structures but I presume the rest will stay largely as is.
