This project involved refurbishment and restoration of two shops and their associated derelict residential dwellings, servicing the Glen Huntly retail precinct. The internal layout was reconfigured to separate the shops from the residences and a warehouse space accessed from the rear. This provided flexibility for the client to stage works and lease tenancies at various completion points. The shops were both upgraded to meet accessibility codes with street frontages restored to reveal original signage and finishes.
Apartment 1 refurbishment is now complete with new bathroom and kitchen and general surface finishes. Apartment 2 to follow.
Stage 1 completed 2018.
