Lonsdale House, Lonsdale St, Melbourne (Autumn 2010)

LonsdaleHouseMelbourneOne of Melbourne’s iconic Art Deco buildings, Lonsdale House, was recently demolished by its owners, Colonial First State, with the support of Myer Pty Ltd, the State Government and the City of Melbourne.

To the Minister for Planning, ‘heritage’ architects who supported the demolition, Heritage Victoria, and City Councillors – shame.

To the thousands of people who signed on-line petitions to express their support for the building, and their disgust with the State Government and City of Melbourne, we say thanks.
