Appraisal

The scale and form of this building make a notable and positive addition to the streetscape. Though now greatly altered to the ground floor, the upper levels remain of architectural heritage significance, due to the retention of interesting features and materials. Of apparent architectural design, the fa├žade is enlivened by the elaborate decorative render which articulates the form of the building and was clearly executed by skilled craftsmen.
