Tao Gofers: Sirius, 1978D–1980

  • Sydney, Australia, Show on map
  • #RES #RescueCampaign #Oceania
  • Besides the built residential block a commercial block was never realized. Multiple block and apartment sizes were designed to house aged residents as well as families.

  • Under threat of redevelopment. The S.O.S. Save Our Sirius campaign tries to rescue the building. The heritage council recommended that it be given heritage protection, but this was denied by the Minister for Heritage. The last remaining resident moved out in December 2017. However, the government has included a caveat in the sale which forbids any new building to be as tall as the existing one. (Special thanks to Jenna Reed Burns)

    As of January 2019 the city still has not found a buyer for the site.
