The Hotham Hotel 1872-1899 , New Empire 1899-1904, later a grocery store, currently a solicitor ‘s office.
Graded A (of state significance) in the Melbourne City Council’s North and West Melbourne Conservation Study 1983.
John Barry, a well-known architect of the 1870s, designed the colonnade that included the original Hotham Hotel. In 1872, the owner and local councillor Thomas Fogarty, was able to attract classy tenants to the new shops. Perhaps this good beginning and the advantages of its position set a good tone because the shops have usually operated ever since as a successful group. ·
As with several other local buildings of this period, there are deep moulds that create dramatic shadows and serve to unify the façade visually. The Melbourne firm of Drysdale and Fraser made the original Corinthian cast iron columns.
