SKYSCRAPERS IN HOBART
THE city is a city. It’s not a retirement village. We all sit and wonder why our kids leave Hobart for the mainland and we lose the skills, the experience and all the opportunities to lift Hobart and carry it forward to bigger and better things.
DEVELOPMENT doesn’t have to mean high-rise. There are European cities that have proved that, and no one would suggest that Paris (for example) is a “retirement village”.
I GET so tired of being called a boring person because I don’t want highrise buildings. Give me a decent road/rail infrastructure and I’ll call it progress.
IT’S OK to keep heritage buildings, but you also have to move with the times and provide cashedup visitors to the island with the latest amenities. The island isn’t lacking in welcoming people, but lacks real investment with progressive thinking.
