10-16 Boundary St, South Melbourne

October 2020

The development was officially completed in August.

10 - 16 Boundary St, South Melbourne

Architects DKO describe the architecture this way:
"Externally, Habitus combines bronze aluminium detailing with pre-cast concrete and dark textured bricks – all of which pay homage to the locality’s industrial pedigree. Drawing inspiration from surrounding warehouses, the strong saw-tooth roof forms ensure the development is sympathetic to its streetscape. While the integrated landscaping softens the industrial edge creating a verdant inner-urban escape."

Over a period of time 237 Princes St deteriorated to such an extent that it appeared it would just fall into a heap. I thought it was gone.
