On the corner of Victoria and Surrey Streets, Darlinghurst, sits a one-time laundrette.
Months ago, we noticed a development application plastered on the wall outside with plans for a new pharmacy.
The DA was approved, according to the City of Sydney Council’s records, on 22 January this year.
Inside it is still the shell of a laundry.
Outside it is a partly boarded up wall of graffiti, chicken wire, stickers and posters for upcoming gigs.
With the cost of the development estimated at $65,000, is the continuing state of disarray a sign of the GFC?
