Design of a nineteen two and three level townhouses built within the shell of an “A” Grade Historic Former Tram Engine House. Former Tram Engine House
has been recognised by The Department of Planning and Community Development as an exemplar project that illustrates high quality design.
The cable tram track formation is of archaeological significance as the only known cable tram track to survive intact in Melbourne. The archaeological remains of the tram track infrastructure provide information about the operation of cable trams. The section of Abbotsford Street outside the former engine house has the potential to contain archaeological remains explaining the connection between the engine house and the underground cable tunnels and the track arrangement for the shunting operations.
