High Court Building, Little Bourke St, Melbourne (April 2006)

Digital Innovations Preservation, Victoria

In the face of concerted opposition to demolition, the Department of Justice withdrew the original application and then applied to Heritage Victoria for a permit to modify the building and construct an office tower. The result will be the retention of the front third of the 1926 building, including the facade, entrance foyer and the former Court No. 1. The historic court will become an interpretive display.
