According to Friday’s SMH (7 Dec – “Evaluation dispute poses threat to $1Bn return from Barangaroo”, under an approved plan for the “Hotel is situated on a pier jutting into Sydney Harbour. However the Premier has called for it to be relocated”.
Relocated to where Barry? Not to the middle of the recreation area of Barangaroo surely Barry?
Could I suggest to George St or Pitt St. After all, the wealthy tourists supposed to fly into and out of Sydney to lose their money at the Casino aren’t really interested in anything but the gambling so why waste our public land on them?
And certainly not on our relatively scarce public land.
So, come clean Barry. Where do you have in mind to place James Packer’s Casino? If it’s in the recreational area of Barangaroo – think again.
