The last Sirius resident, Myra Demetriou, then 91, moved out in February 2018 after fighting a long battle to stay when the NSW government revealed plans to sell the building to developers in 2014.

The legally blind great grandmother had lived there for 10 years and was the face of the long-running Save Our Sirius community campaign which tried to save tenants from being evicted. 

The building was then sold to JDH Capital for $150million in 2019.

While the apartments are still under development, there’s already a long list of buyers waiting to place their bids when they go up for sale later this month.

JDH’s development director John Green told The Australian they weren’t looking to knock down the structure altogether.  

‘It has so many attributes – fantastic views, looking right at the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, the city and out to the heads,’ he said. 

‘It was also long and slim, so I knew once we had arranged the apartments internally we could get front and back crossflow apartments – it is rare to have windows on both sides.’

Developers have also brought in British interior designer Kelly Hoppen, who has worked for the likes of David Beckham, Elton John and Madonna.

The apartments are expected to be finished by the end of next year and will also feature commercial and retail spaces for restaurants.
