Syd­ney: A plaque on a wall could be the fi­nal rem­nant of Bondi Beach’s her­itage-listed post of­fice if re­de­vel­op­ment of the build­ing goes ahead, lo­cal res­i­dents say.

The post of­fice, built in 1922 and de­scribed as an ex­am­ple of “in­ter­war stripped clas­si­cal style”, was qui­etly sold by Aus­tralia Post for $10 mil­lion to fi­nan­cial ad­vi­sor Jamie Nemt­sas. Re­de­vel­op­ment plans emerged af­ter Mr Nemt­sas on-sold it to Syd­ney con­struc­tion and prop­erty de­vel­oper Tay­lor with an ask­ing price of $15 mil­lion.

Se­na­tor Doug Cameron was out­raged about the sale and raised the is­sue in the Se­nate be­fore the last fed­eral elec­tion.

Tay­lor’s devel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tion (DA) in­cludes three storeys of apart­ments with a re­tail shopfront un­der­neath and two lev­els of park­ing un­der­ground.
