The Janion Hotel

For many years the derelict Janion Hotel stood boarded up and empty at the eastern end of the Johnson Street Bridge. It looked haunted enough so that I even used the photo below as a scary Hallowe'en picture for this blog. However, in the last year or so work has commenced to turn this heritage building into a smart bunch of micro-flats (above). I'm happy to see this old building re-purposed in this way but I hope the final product will look a little more integrated. Below is the Janion Hotel from the front 5 or 6 years ago.

I think I know this place! I mean the old one...isn't kind of behind the pink customs house?

You're close JoJo but a few blocks off - this one is just on the corner of Pandora and Store Streets, opposite The Swans Hotel. It's right beside the new bridge - you can see the bridge support posts in the photo.

Still a lot of work to do, I see.
