Developer accused of giving ‘two-fingered salute’ after smashing down heritage facade

A Singapore-based developer has been accused of giving Sydneysiders “a two-fingered salute” after builders on one of their sites smashed down a heritage facade with sledgehammers while working on a new tower block.

Instead of preserving the 1912 Edwardian facade as they’d pledged, they left only two spindly thin separate features of the frontage of the treasured Kings Cross building, propped up with metal girders.
