Despite a unanimous recommendation from the NSW Heritage Council and calls from the National Trust NSW and Australian Institute of Architects NSW, the NSW Government will not list the Sirius building on the State Heritage Register. The Sirius building was purpose built for social housing in 1975 and is a rare and representative example of Brutalist architecture. My action HERE.
I am concerned about tenants being turned out of their homes and about a heritage system that allows the minister to override expert advice in order to sell off assets for a higher price.
The community’s Save Our Sirius campaign continues, information HERE.
