The hole was already there because the elegant 1960 skybridge was already there, which was going to be retained 'or rebuilt', and sadly didnt make it to the register because it was 'outside the period of significance' but that probably wouldnt have made any difference. The new Myer facade opposite hardly looks ready for a skybridge, and Myer are only going to take one floor o the new shopping centre, so who knows what will happen ?

Here is the hold from the Little Bourke Street en, back in July - the original hole was about half as wide. During the earlier refurbishment of the Bourke Street store the south end of the skybridge was propped up on temporary struts, as the rest of the building was gone. I found it odd that so much effort was used to keep it, only for the skybridge to be demolished.

This photo I posted earlier of the current Myer store shows how the glass facade is broken up by two parallel vertical mullions, in contrast to the angled mullions on the rest of the facade. They also line up with the gap posted earlier, so I assume a skybridge is something that has been designed for.
