    I loved this article in Commercial Real Estate giving a fascinating insight into the history of Terminus Hotel in Pyrmont.

Yellow Cards, Terminus Hotel Pyrmont - AU NBAC N60-YC-700 terminus Hotel - 1930 It was actually in the first article by Commercial Real Estate with its report that Terminus hotel was going under the hammer that gave me the idea to make some inquiries with the agent, JLL .

    Everything after that is history, but I'm sure glad I asked the question.

    So, over to the article, I do like the way Jack has explained the functions of an inner city working class pub through the years to serve as a meeting place due to an absence of ordinary working class families to have room for people to gather in their homes.

    All Sydney pubs have a story to tell, but it’s likely none has as many colourful chapters in its history as the Terminus Hotel in Pyrmont.

    Abandoned since 1984, the ivy-covered Terminus has always piqued the interest of those passing by the corner of Harris and John streets. Interest was revived last month when the property was put on the market, and the first images inside the forgotten pub were revealed after more than three decades.

    This week, it was announced that the property had been sold for $5 million to a private developer who is reportedly considering a number of uses, including the reactivation of the still-licensed premises.

    The National Trust welcomed the news that the Terminus, a “fine example of an early 20th-century hotel”, might be put back into use.

    “There is ample scope for additional social and entertainment venues in the vicinity, now that the peninsula has been redeveloped as a residential area,” Mr Quint says.
