Freo's View

The artwork feature on the new Quest apartment hotel development at Pakenham Street turns out to be very disappointing and mediocre and not at all complimentary to the heritage building. It is basically the same glass panel twice with a lot of blue and not much else. What an opportunity lost to make a real statement on that corner!

Just down the road in Short Street there are real nice splashes of colour that make a lot of difference to the otherwise average-looking street. Well done to whoever is responsible for this bold colourful facelift of the building!

    Are they referencing the missing domes on most of the pubs?
