35 Albert Street – a neglected gem now ripe for renovation

A neglected gem now ripe for renovation

35 Albert St, April 2013

After decades of neglect which didn’t bode well for a double-fronted Victorian house at 35 Albert Street, approval was sought to demolish the building and replace it with three two-storey townhouses. The City of Port Phillip and Albert Street residents combined to affect a change of heart. The application changed to a proposed restoration and extension to this now heritage-listed building, and a reduced scope of works which now includes just one adjoining townhouse.

VCAT issued a permit on 21 June 2013 which requires the retention of the double-fronted dwelling which will contribute greatly to the heritage rejuvenation in this section of Albert Street.
