Evolving Port

Port Melbourne and Fishermans Bend continue to change. Houses are changed or demolished and new houses take their place. New forms of housing are created. Port Houses records some of these changes.

On 27 April, a new builder was appointed to complete the development after a long hiatus. Excavation by the previous builders apparently damaged neighbouring houses and building work halted.

It doesn't take long. Graffiti despoils Sable Bleu. The information booth has disappeared - perhaps it was not approved?

By the end of the week, the display suite for Sable Bleu is in place. There are 14 apartments in this 4 level development, advertised as residences.
Architects: Selwyn Blackstone

Trees gone. Site almost clear.

The houses on the corner of Rouse and Princes St are being demolished.

The All England Eleven Hotel was formerly on this site. Refer to the Port Melbourne Historical and Preservation Society website for more information. 

It was also the first site to be sewered in all of Melbourne.

During the sale period, people expressed their views about the development potential of the site.
