Going, Going...

Spotted this old villa being cut up for removal on the way home tonight.

Building by building our area's character is being moved away or demolished. This is the 3rd character building within a 2 km radius to be removed or demolished this year.

The building is making way for a multi storey tilt-slab construction. The owner was quoted as saying about the old house "When you see it hard up against the adjoining building, I don't think it has any architectural merit," - kind of ironic when you discover that he is responsible for the monstrosity next door.
