THE list of long-empty buildings plaguing Northbridge is shrinking.
Perth city council keeps a register of tough-nut properties that aren’t progressing, but planning committee chief Rob Butler says it’s been whittled from eight to three.
The remaining properties on the list are:
• 78 James Street, the old DV8 Nightclub;
• 2-6 Parker Street, the old Perth markets opposite Russell Square; and,
• 68 Roe Street, an abandoned gaming cafe.
One of the properties that’s moved off the list is the old Taj Mahal restaurant on Lake Street which been leased to Adam Webb who’s hoping to resurrect his cuffs n collars nightclub The Republic.
