Plans To Demolish Melbourne's Festival Hall

Melbourne's iconic Festival Hall could be demolished to make way for a $65 million apartment complex.

A planning proposal has been lodged with Melbourne City Council for two apartment towers - one 16 storeys tall - shops and an office space at the site of the boxing stadium turned concert hall.

The redevelopment plan includes demolition of most of the hall but the retention of the Dudley Street facade, the boxing ring and stage, which has hosted The Beatles, Shirley Bassey, Frank Sinatra and more recently, Kanye West.
