There is a huge crane in the park between the Albemarle and Alexander Buildings with a long chain attached… just waiting for a wrecking ball?

more than a year later and both buildings are still standing. any idea of when the eyesores will finally come down? then again with this Govt, the site will remain vacant and unsightly for years to come.

Yep. I work in the building opposite and they are clearing the higher levels at the moment. Read the proposal – combination long term/short term accomodation, office and retail space. Oh and a big carpark.

I have a good view of the site from where I work. various diggers have been moving up and down the top floor of Alexander for a few weeks now. both buildings are definitely on their way down.

When I was last there about a month ago, there was a demolition notice up on the temporary fencing along Furzer Street.
