Following the granting of a demolition permit by the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT), the distinctive Fitzroy building was nominated by ADMS to the Victorian Heritage Register. The Executive Director of Heritage Victoria rejected the nomination and the State Planning Minister has since decided that the building not be included on the Register. It would appear that the building will now be lost.
