Lonsdale House, Lonsdale St, Melbourne (Spring 2008)

LonsdaleHouseMelbourneLonsdale House, with its fabulous Art Deco tower, was nominated by ADMS to the Victorian Heritage Register but was unsuccessful. Following a hearing with a panel from the Historica Buildings Council, the original decision was supported and the panel agreed that it was not of State significance. However, the panel was split in its decision. A major outcome of the meeting was that the building has been recognised by its owners and by Heritage Victoria as a good example of a commercial building from the Art Deco era.
