Statement of Interest

Empty 1999. Simpler, but stylistically similar to Billings' nearby projects at Nos 102-104 Brunswick Street (1859) and Nos 115-137 Ingram Street & 118-128 Brunswick Street (1854-56) - see separate list entries. Entered via pends from Brunswick Street to the W and Candleriggs to the E.

Statutory address changed from 'Property to Rear of 100 Brunswick Street, 85 Candleriggs Patrick Thomas Court' in 2014.
