City of Melbourne Building
112-118 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne 3000.
- Built in 1888.
- Designed by Ellerker And Kilburn.
- Listed on the Victorian Heritage Register (no 603489).
This building was constructed in 1888 for the short-lived City of Melbourne Building Society which collapsed in the 1890's. The design eclectically combines classical elements such as columns, pilasters, aedicules and Baroque-style pediments with a picturesque roofline of steeply pitched slate roofs, wrought iron decoration and massive chimneys.
The shop fronts have been much-altered at the ground floor level and the building is in substantial need of cleaning and restoration work.
