170-174 Leura Mall, Leura

In late 2015, Blue Mountains Council announced plans to demolish the building at 170-74 Leura Mall. This announcement was not well received by the community, with a petition to save the building attracting more than 10,000 signatures. Council backed down on the decision to demolish and prepared a development application to restore the original building which included a new addition to the rear. The DA was approved

Following the DA approval, Grazi Prada (while working at NBRS) prepared a detailed schedule of conservation works for the building, which was to form part of the construction documentation of the building. Her report included works to all parts of the existing building, as well as guidelines on how to construct the extension to the rear.
