272 Queen Street collateral damage

272 Queen Street collateral damage

Following Ryan's article this morning on 272 Queen St, I thought it best to highlight an unknown aspect of the site itself.

Mundane in appearance, the existing building holds a generally unknown little gem by way of a private lane off Little Lonsdale Street. Endorsed by Melbourne City Council, the lane is adorned with some impressive street art.

Once 272 Queen St commences these artworks will be lost and hopefully another laneway will be chosen to take its place. Ultimately you win some, you lose some.

Mark Baljak was a co-founder of Urban.com.au. He passed away on Thursday 8th of November 2018 after a battle with cancer. He was 37. Mark was a keen traveller, having visited all six permanently-inhabited continents and had a love of craft beer. One of his biggest passions was observing the change that has occurred in Melbourne over the past two decades. In that time he built an enormous library of photos, all taken by him, which tracked the progress of construction on building sites from across metropolitan Melbourne.
