Marketing has begun for the Orama development at 40 Beach St.
It is a 4 level development containing 23 dwellings. The site wraps around the Pier Hotel.
I prefer to imagine the site as Liardet recalled it in his 1875 painting when it would have been a range of outbuildings to the Pier Hotel which provided
‘superior accommodation for families and gentlemen, carriage conveyance to and from Melbourne. Saddle horses, carts and drays for the conveyance of luggage, good stabling and a stock yard.’
