Digital Innovations Lost Buildings, Preservation, Victoria

This former Cable Car building in Fitzroy was the subject of a review by the Historic Buildings Council to examine whether it should be included on the Victorian Heritage Register. However, the Committee determined that it did not have the power to make the determination as there had not been a formal nomination of the building. ADS lodged a nomination of the building to the Register which has been rejected, and the building would appear to by doomed.
