Executive Mayor of Port Elizabeth, Benson Fihla
South Africa

It has come to my attention today (and to hundreds of others via Facebook Group http://goo.gl/Afm7E that the iconic Hotel Minhetti at Seaview in Port Elizabeth is to be demolished to make way for contemporary apartments.

This is a building of great historic (art deco) significance and historic merit in Port Elizabeth, and should be preserved by the Municipality as such. At the very least it should be redeveloped by sensitive purchasers only as a conserved landmark of great social, architectural and historic importance to the city of Port Elizabeth.

We, the undersigned, call on the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality to safeguard the historic art deco landmark building of the old Hotel Minhetti at Seaview as part of the heritage of the friendly city.
