Digital Innovations Lost Buildings, Preservation, Victoria

A proposal is currently before the Stonnington Council for the construction of a 27-storey hotel complex on the corner of Chapel St and Toorak Rd.

This proposal would require the demolition of the Capitol Bakeries building. Harry Norris designed two major bakeries in Melbourne; the other was the Northern Bakery building in Brunswick. The Capitol building has undergone many changes since it closed as a bakery.CapitolBakeriesSouthYarra
