This is an individual apartment in the new and amazing 'Islington Silos' building, in a modern city precinct near the middle of Collingwood, and only a stones throw to Melbourne CBD and the Yarra River. This conversion of an historic silos building made a defining contribution to the transformation of the once industrial hub into arguably the most sought after and trendiest suburbs in Melbourne.
Originally a malt store built in 1878, this site was a former malt silo, servicing the surrounding breweries. It represented an early phase of industrial development in the area. The expansion of the malt store to include the adjoining silos mirrored the burgeoning brewing industry in Victoria at the time. Today the malt store and silos complex are prominent elements of the Islington St development.
