Evolving Port

Port Melbourne and Fishermans Bend continue to change. Houses are changed or demolished and new forms of housing take their place. Port Houses records some of these changes.

Planning matters

The City of Port Phillip approved application 112/2016 for 'part demolition; alterations and additions including a two-storey addition to rear of the existing dwelling and the construction of a new front fence' on 8 June 2017. 

The decision was appealed to VCAT which approved the application on 26 September 2017.

Looking sad. Weeds in the clever garden beds on top of the wall admired a year or so ago.
Apparently terminal decline while planning matters are being resolved.

The house was sold on 5 October 2013 for $760,000. (source Buxton)

58 Station St, Port Melbourne

10 November 2018

The property changed hands again for $860,000.


20 June 2017

The house at 58 Station St was sold by Cayzer for $964,000. It is reported that a jogger going past bought it on a whim and paid $194,000 over the reserve. 

Opposite Port Melbourne's Railway Reserves, minutes from Graham station and just a few more to the beach and Bay St, its advantages are easy to see.
