As most Glebe residents will have noticed, the Glebe Town Hall, built in 1880, is undergoing substantial renovations and will not be re-opened until mid-2012. The City of Sydney has offered to make a presentation to Glebe Society members interested in architecture and heritage on the restoration. Representatives from the construction company and the City of Sydney will take part in the presentation. The project involves internal refurbishment, landscape upgrade, enhancement of public uses and improvement of accessibility.
The restoration will ensure this historic and valued building is accessible and welcoming for the whole community, and that it can be used for a wide range of meetings, events and groups. By combining modern, sustainable design with careful restoration of the original features, the Town Hall and the Lodge buildings will be revived and protected for the future. A stunning glass façade will feature on the new accessible entrance to the building on Lodge Street.
