An existing site of 4800sqm contains a dilapidated warehouse and associated car park being home to company Spotless. The heritage facade facing Victoria Crescent is retained, while the underutilized warehouse space is demolished to make way for the proposed new buildings.
Design cues are taken from this existing facade on Victoria Crescent and a complimentary podium facade is inserted next to it. Behind this facade, and the existing, retail spaces are inserted to the street level interface. Behind that, two levels of carparking are added with access from Little Nicholson St. 11,000m2 of commercial office space over 4 levels is also included with appropriate setbacks to adjoining neighbours.
