This site lies within close proximity to a group of Provincial Heritage Sites (previously National Monuments under older legislation): Admiralty House (Gazette No. 3681 of 20-Oct-1972), Palace Barracks (Gazette No. 3131 of 04-Jun-1971), Studland (Gazette No. 2489 of 25-Jul-1969) and Yarra-Yarra (Gazette No 10826 of 17-Jul-1987). The site lies in the same block as, and immediately adjoins, Studland, Yarra-Yarra and the associated Old Brewery. Click here to view location on google maps

An unsuitable development comprising a monolithic block of 25 flats is planned on the site. The design is entirely unsympathetic to the streetscape and Sense of Place. 

The development has been rubber-stamped 'approved' by City of Cape Town Council officials despite concerted objections. This approval must be revoked or rescinded and a more suitable scheme put forward.
