Notable features

The Emerald Hill Estate is architecturally important as an extraordinary example of municipal planning during the 1880s boom. The symmetrical and mannered arrangement of commercial and residential blocks around a municipal precinct is unique in Victoria. While the architectural importance of the Emerald Hill Estate lies mainly in its cohesion as a precinct, the former Harcourt and Perry drapery (1885), 256-264 Park Street, is notable in its own right for its unusual Gothic treatment and its Omaru limestone facade.
