We are pleased to announce a Development Application (DA) has been submitted with the City of Sydney for the heritage-listed Metro-Minerva building in Potts Point.
Plans will see the vacant Metro-Minerva building, last occupied as an office building, lovingly restored into a multi-use venue, incorporating a boutique hotel delivered to international standards, and performance spaces, for which the building is renowned.
The new scheme will see the art deco features retained and conserved, including the original horsehair ceiling and proscenium arch. The interiors of the public spaces will incorporate interpretive experiences of the building and its history. The restoration of the main auditorium will allow for a flexible arrangement of hospitality offerings, mixed with innovative and cultural experiences from live music and cabaret, to conferences and fringe performances. In addition to the main auditorium, a café and other entertainment spaces are being provided, which will create a new chapter in the Metro-Minerva’s colourful history. Scheduled for completion in 2024, pending DA approval. www.theminerva.com.au
