Description:
A $40m crowdfunding campaign has been launched in a bid to block tech giant Apple from setting up shop in Federation Square. As part of a last-ditch attempt by the group Our City, Our Square to stop the development, they’re also urging Melburnians to make a heritage submission to oppose Apple's demolition permit for the Yarra Building. “It might be absurd that the taxpayers have to raise their own money to buy back a building they already own but that is the game we are now playing.” - spokesman, Brett de Hoedt. www.7plus.com.au/news #7News
