Reflections on Alexandria

Driving along Botany road on the way to the office this morning I was reminded of what our neighbourhood used to be like twenty years ago. I have known this area for many years and until relatively recent times its character was more light industrial than residential with building related small businesses and take away food outlets lining our stretch of Botany Road. The Rosebery pub on the corner of Epsom Road was a popular watering hole frequented by rusted on Rabbitoh supporters and the surrounding precinct aromas were more pungent than floral.

Well, that is changing now and we are becoming gentrified with an incredible number of new residential developments being built that are demanding the full range of services that go with a mixed use residential neighbourhood. We now have Dan Murphy’s opposite our office and the district boasts a wide variety of restaurants and cafes including two favourites of mine, Black Star and Zeus.
