Property developer Jian Wang has announced that demolition of the buildings on his Waterside development site is about to start.
Mr Wang was in Gosford in late April to sign the contract that will see the old Frogys building in Mann Street and the former Junior’s Leagues Club on the corner of Georgiana Terrace and Baker Street come down.
The former County Council building in Mann Street will not be demolished at this stage owing to a heritage order on the façade. In addition, the open area fronting Baker Street will be cleaned up and debris removed. The entire site will then be secured to prevent access and make it vandal proof.
Mr Wang’s company Hong Kong Macau Australian Pty Ltd acquired the site in early 2015 and engaged local architects CKDS Architecture to design a 3-tower development which was subsequently approved by the Joint Regional Planning Panel in December 2015.
