This tired1980's office building has been converted into 57 luxury apartments with banking and retail at ground floor. The massing of the existing building was readdressed to provide a vertical element at the point where Victoria Street changes direction. The building was stripped back to the frame, extended, and re-clad with Petersen facing brickwork. The apartments benefit from the generous ceiling heights of the existing building, and a new decked garden to the South for residents use has been created.
