Just when I thought it couldn't get worse, they add a tacky butterfly

Precinct may be planning a refurbishment of HSBC at some point in the future. Let's hope so

Chorus House Ground Floor Refurbishment



The ground floor of Chorus House is getting an extensive refurbishment including the addition of a cafe and several retail tenancies. Work seems to have started in the last week or so and is expected to be complete by the middle of next year. It's great to see some more street level activation in this part of the CBD!

This is the Hobson Street side of the building.

No, it's the Wyndham Street side (that's Federal on the left hand side, and the Heritage hotel in the background)

Building really needs to be painted a new colour. That orange doesn't go well at all.

Ah yes of course sorry!

Guess it's also in anticipation of Federal Street becoming a shared space, good time to revamp as foot traffic will only increase.

Are there any renders for the hotel conversion at 396 Queen St. Looks like they are stripping off all the glass.

[EDIT] Never mind, just found one

Looks like the Hobson Street frontage will be getting a gym and a retail tenancy on the corner. So not quite as good as the Federal Street frontage but still a huge improvement on what currently exists.
