Protestors have rallied around three properties in Highgate Hill which fell through a legal loophole allowing a developer to seek approval to construct a five-storey unit block in their place.
While developer Sunland started demolition of St Lucia’s Pink Palace to make way for a luxury residential precinct.
Built in 1989, the mansion was not heritage listed but had a colourful history to rival its salmon hue. It reportedly hosted Elton John, Cher and Bruce Springsteen in its heyday, and sadly two previous owners met with untimely deaths.
So what is heritage listed and what is not? It seems a question even Brisbane City councillors sometimes grapple with.
But if you want to check out a property’s heritage status, here are a few places to start.
