The Gary Proctor Building – 99 John St N
Wasn’t this building home to a reclusive internet café at one point?
It was! I completely forgot about that. Thanks for reminding me.
I have never noticed this building before – thanks for pointing it out. I’ll check it out next week.
I drove past and admired this 70s building last week while looking for a Beasley property for a client. Glad to see others like it too :)
Does anyone know the story as to why it’s named The Gary Proctor Building?
It’s actually quite an upsetting story: http://m.thespec.com/news-story/2258442-namesakes-the-gary-proctor-building/
My understanding is that it was built by Wilfred Proctor in remembrance of his son Gary who was killed at a fairly young age. The site was a welding school run by Wilfred, he had the building erected on the same site. The family sold the building many years ago but the name has remained.
