Sydney's Sirius building officially for sale, social housing minister says

Sydney’s Sirius building is officially on the market with a price tag of around $100m, the New South Wales government has confirmed.

The brutalist building next to the Sydney Harbour bridge – which has been used for social housing for more than 30 years – is being sold to developers who are expected to replace it with hundreds of private apartments, despite fierce opposition from community groups desperate to save it.

“It’s up for sale today – we’re looking for expressions of interest,” the minister for social housing, Pru Goward, told ABC Radio on Thursday.

The decision has been fiercely opposed by a broad cross-section of the Sydney community, from tenants who attempted to hold out against the move, to the Australian Institute of Architects, which says the building should be retained for its heritage value.
