The decision has been made to reopen Sydney's Lindt Cafe, the site of the siege in December, with a permanent tribute to the victims of this callous act of violence.
While repairs to the building are currently underway it is acknowledged that there are many serious practical considerations to be worked through in preparation for its reopening.
The renowned hospitality venue has been boarded up since Man Haron Monis walked into the cafe on 16 December, 2015 and turned 17 innocent people's worlds upside down. After 16 hours the gunman and two of the hostages, cafe owner Tori Johnson and lawyer Katrina Dawson, were dead.
May the Lindt cafe come back stronger than ever.
