Statement of significance:

Representative of the interwar flats developments in Cremorne and an interesting example of its type, using Federation details to the elevation fronting the Reserve and harbour aspect. It is one of a number of adjacent similar buildings which together form a varied period ensemble.

The sandstone, exposed brickwork and timber window frames contribute to the building's character. The interior original decorative features are also of significance. The landscape setting on the waterfront contributes to its expanded visual curtilage and setting.

Heritage Inventory sheets are often not comprehensive, and should be regarded as a general guide only. Inventory sheets are based on information available, and often do not include information on landscape significance, interiors or the social history of sites and buildings. Inventory sheets are updated by Council as further information becomes available. An inventory sheet with little information may simply indicate that there has been no building work done to the item recently: it does not mean that items are not significant. Further research is always recommended as part of preparation of development proposals for heritage items, and is necessary in preparation of Heritage Impact Assessments and Conversation Management Plans, so that the significance of heritage items can be fully assessed prior to submitting development applications.
