History

Original buildings were constructed c. 1870. This site was redeveloped in the mid-1980s, keeping the existing Victorian terraces at 56, 58 & 60 Bettington Street and incorporating them into new development on the corner of Bettington Street and Rodens Lane and further along Rodens Lane for one bedroom units. First tenanted by the NSW Department of Housing in 1986.

A further development application was lodged in 2017 to redevelop the non-heritage-listed 1980s developments.

Heritage listing

As at 23 November 2000, the building makes a significant contribution to the streetscape of the immediate area owing to the sweeping curve of the facade at the corner of Bettington and Merriman Streets.
