The place is a modified example of a commercial building dating from the 1890s that forms part of a group of similar places and makes a contribution to the streetscape of the Old Port City of Fremantle. The place is of social significance as evidenced by its classification by the National Trust.
Two storey stone and brick building with corners rendered with ashlar effect and a zero setback from the pavement. There are low engaged pilasters on the parapet and at each floor to dado height. The windows and doorways are arched. Building presents an unadorned profile to the street (modified from original).
The original name of the building was Broken Hill Chambers, which was in stucco lettering on a now missing parapet. Early photos show that the current facade has been much altered, and was originally more elaborate and detailed. (Information provided by owners, Notre Dame University, 2011).
The building was converted in 1976 for the Eric Car Gallery and residence.
A Fremantle Award for this place in 1983 was for three town houses behind the original building.
In 2002 the place was occupied by the Australian Maritime Officers Union.
It has since been purchased by Notre Dame University.
The owner of Unit 2/28, J Larwood, advised that her part of the building underwent renovations and alterations for the America's Cup.
The Fremantle MHI management category for this place was amended and adopted by the decision of Council on 28/09/2011.
