Willow Court/Royal Derwent Hospital: Administration Building, built in 1940 in the Art Deco style. It was originally bought some years ago but the ownsers never developed it and it remains in a very neglected and vandalised state. Many wonderful art deco features remain, including the main front details, an amazing theater with period detailing.

The complex was on the market at $350,000 and was recently sold (April/May 09). It's future though remains uncertain.
