Appraisal

Eden Quay was constructed in the early part of the nineteenth century with some of the buildings having been reconstructed post-1916. Many of the buildings in this area functioned as offices of steamship agents and brokers and had stone arcaded shopfronts although this feature has been dispensed with in this building. The fenestration rhythm and parapet height of the terrace has been maintained in this building and it forms an integral component of the streetscape. A timber doorcase to the ground floor and timber sash windows to the rear and first floor add additional historic integrity to the building.
