doors unlocked and open

Love Our Laneways (@LOLBNE) is a community initiative dedicated to saving the laneway precinct and beautiful old building between Elizabeth and Charlotte Streets in the city, which has just been approved by the city council for imminent demolition. Reminiscent of Melbourne or even Barcelona, this area could be an incredibly vibrant addition to the cultural life of the CBD, instead a glass and steel office tower has been approved to be built for the Australian Tax Office.

Amazingly this building is not heritage listed, so the only way to save it is if the developers or the ATO have a change of heart. We are not against the development per se, but respectfully ask them to consider the incredible potential of this site, and amend their building plans to integrate the laneway precinct and heritage building at its centre.

Help fight against the demolitions of our beautiful cities hidden creative spaces by spreading the word of LOL around.
