Listed Lands and Educations buildings will be opened to the public for the first time in 200 years
The listed buildings known as the “Sandstones” will be developed by Singaporean developer Pontiac Land Group and turned into a 250-room luxury hotel. The plans include ground-level retail, dining, a rooftop winter garden, refurbished domes and temples, an octagonal meeting room, and a reopened horse and carriageway.
“For many years we’ve had these beautiful sandstone buildings closed to the public, housing bureaucrats and prime CBD real estate … it’s a tragedy,” said NSW Minister for Finance, Services and Property Dominic Perrottet.
“Thanks to this stunning restoration you will get to experience their history and grandeur first-hand.”
