CUB Site put off indefinitely

Wow. Just spotted on SMH: “It’s off: Carlton brewery site goes flat”.

THE developer behind the massive former Carlton and United Brewery project at Broadway has called an indefinite halt to construction and says the project will not start until the global economy recovers.

Very interesting. On one hand that’s more time for the project to be scaled back to a level that meets residents’ concerns for overpopulation and green space. On the other hand, it’s a massive city block that looks like Wonka’s chocolate factory was leveled by a wrecking ball. I posted it to the Life in Chippendale blog; I’m interested to hear what other people think about it.

  1. D’you remember the long years when World Tower was known as World Hole? And when they moved St. Leonards railway station temporarily but then the construction firm went bust or something? The station was “temporary” for years and years and years. I’ve been kinda expecting this…

  2. Yeah and the place where the Ivy is now was known to me as the Swimming Pool for years. I just hope the tower doesn’t collapse.
