The Alexandria Hotel closes its doors today, but the fight to save it goes on. A lot of local residents will be gathering, and we hope to see you there.
The building itself may yet be saved; Council are proceeding with the heritage applications. To have your say, visit http://sydneyyoursay.com.au/alexandria-hotel-proposal-to-heritage-list. This will give the building legal protection. The site will still be able to be developed, but it will have to be done in a way that respects and preserves the heritage value of the building.
So although the hotel is closing today, we can still hope that it will reopen some time in the future.
There will be a ‘closing down’ sale on-site on Tuesday, from 10 am.
