Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The future of historic house The Belvedere is hanging by a thread. Brisbane City Council have refused an application by the Greek Orthodox Society to demolish the house on 27 Edmonstone Street, South Brisbane. The matter is currently at the Planning and Environment Court after talks between the council and society came to a standstill. Although The Belvedere has been badly neglected and is dilapidated, the council still says the property should be protected. The house is said to have inspired Booker Prize nominated author David Malouf. The author was raised on Edmonstone Street and most of his inspiration for his writing came from the surrounding area.
