From the Maitland Mercury report:
Three buildings in The Levee will be demolished to make way for an archway that will connect High Street to the banks of the Hunter River.
Maitland City Council approved a development application, at Tuesday’s meeting, to knock over the buildings and construct the river link archway.
The river link building is the key feature of the second stage of the multi-million dollar Central Maitland revamp.
Bailey’s Jewellers and New Look Eyewear will have to relocate after council purchased 396, 398 and 400 High Street for demolition.
