Hobart is abuzz with activity. At the corner of Campbell and Collins Streets, on the fringe of the CBD, a site in the old Wapping district is being excavated. An archaeologist chips away at brick footings and crumbling soil on the longvacant block that is soon to be the University of Tasmania’s Academy of Creative Industries and Performing Arts. It is named The Hedberg, after the Hedberg Bros Garage whose façade, along with the Theatre Royal, will be incorporated into this stunning development.
