Positive News For Heritage Building in Ingles St
The fine 1925 administrative headquarters of J Kitchen & Sons in Ingles have been deteriorating over many years – boarded up and defaced with graffiti.
A proposal for a primary school did not eventuate at this location.
In good news for the building, on Tuesday 19 April the Port Phillip Council approved a planning application to convert the building into seven apartments. While supporting the application, the Council required that the plans be amended to more fully respect the void in the centre of the building.
The void is shown in the photograph below.
