The Asylum Estate was on the site of the Melbourne Benevolent Asylum, the first building in North Melbourne, which opened in 1851 on a 10 acre site which later straddled North & West Melbourne. It was demolished in 1911 and Victoria Street was extended through the site, marking the boundary between North & West Melbourne. The land was subdivided and put up for auction in February 1913. 1-3 Elm Street were on the north eastern section of the Estate.
