Save Our Shrine is urging community action to protect this Melbourne icon before it’s too late.
Despite planning controls which are meant to protect our Shrine from overshadowing, a new expert study shows that three buildings:
1. Prima Pearl (under construction)
2. Australia108 (approved for construction); and
3. Queensbridge Tower (application currently with Planning Minister) … will each cast a shadow over the Shrine during winter months if allowed to proceed.
The Shrine of Remembrance is a place of reflection and respect and should not be overshadowed by high-rise towers. Once built, a piece of Melbourne’s soul will have been compromised forever. This madness must stop!
