Terrace Houses like once curved toward key intersections of Melbourne’s famous boulevarde St Kilda Road, including the Domain and St Kilda Junction. However this vestigal row at St Kilda Junction is one of few remaining in an area now dominated by modern hi-rise and has been adaptively reused as offices. The row of three double storey Italianate terraces, with the naming of “Luzmore” on 645 is a rare example of the concertina style of terrace in Melbourne and are quite elaborate. The northern party wall, despite painting reveals shadow outlines of floors and walls indicating that they may once have been part of a larger row which was at some stage partially demolished.
