I must be missing something – other than the Masonic Hall, there’s nothing architecturally outstanding about the other buildings. They’re common Victorian row houses that have been brightly painted to make them look better than they are. The Ibis hotel is cheap and nasty.

If the feeder canal under Churchill Way is reopened and Guildford Cres realigned to intersect directly with Churchill Way, a public square could be created in front of the hall to compliment the canal banks.

The real eyesore is the Rapports building itself. Assuming it gets redeveloped into something attractive, one could accept the Motorpoint Arena.

Also, the bright colours that give the buildings a certain character are unlikely to remain.
