Concrete Tower Heritage Listed in Hobart

The Wrest Point Casino in Hobart designed by Sir Roy Grounds has been provided heritage listing by the Tasmanian Heritage Council.  Opened in the 1973 the building has fine curves and stands on the River Derwent as a bold a creative design in concrete.   It remains the tallest building in Hobart. Great to see a Tasmanian Modernist design listed on the register.
