Snidest & Abraham, Edwardian Tobacco hq soon to be multi-level hospo.

A rather nice Edwardian warehouse on #LonsdaleStreet built in c1905 for Sniders & Abraham Tobacco to go with their warehouses in the lane behind. Just saw scaffolding, don’t know what for, no planning applications, fortunately it got #heritagelisted last year, so presumably nothing drastic. It’s called Pacific House cos from the 20s it was Pacific Typewriters, back when typewriters are a thing (ie 1880s-1980s). Update @jcbarchitects are doing it over as a multilevel bar/restaurant venue with a rooftop bar, sounds fine though looks like new window frames ?? And turning the side into vertical strips ??
