There is far too much Drama in this thread.

The plan is to demolish the rear side of the building and preserve the front facade/portion of the building and reworking it into a new development. That sounds to me like a good compromise for the site. It's keeping the heritage elements of the site, and what seems to be over half the original building, but leaving the developer room to work and build some new development at the site. It looks to me that the plan is to keep the entire west side of the building along Caroline.

What's the problem here? Is there a desire to keep awkward, mismatching brickwork from the previously attached building, or the lack of street level grey facade that the entire back of the building lacks? Are we doing this, while the plan is to put underground parking in it's place, in an area plague with excessive surface parking?

I for one am glad that this partial demolition is going through and the reliefs are being reincorporated into the new development.
