South Brisbane gentrification pushes aside Hellenic hub

West End’s own Hellenic house on Russell Street is set to be demolished for an 8 storey unit development. Brisbane city council quietly approved the development late last year.

Members of the Greek community have responded with mixed emotions, some are reconciled that a new hellenic house will be opened on vulture street in conjunction with the current Cypriot House.

Other local residents have protested the proposal saying the development was soul less and removing cultural significance from the area.

More than 50 of the 65 units have already been sold.
