Sirius Building - The Rocks

Sirius is a 79-unit public housing apartment block located in The Rocks, Sydney. It was built to house local residents displaced by The Rocks redevelopment. It has been recommended for State Heritage Listing for its connection to the Green Ban movement and for being a fine example of Brutalist architecture. This recommendation has been supported by a recent decision in the Land and Environment Court, a challenge made possible by crowdfunding and other activities of the Save Our Sirius Foundation which has been campaigning for Sirius and finding ways to celebrate the building and its residents since the government announced plans for its demolition.
