A three-storey and attic shophouse of the early 1870s was replaced at No. 36 in 2015–16 for Nelcraft Ltd (Israel Gross) by Reddington Construction to the designs of PHD Associates. Seven storeys of flats over a shop (initially a nail bar) step back from a five-storey façade providing north-facing roof terraces to the top two floors. Some of the flats are Cuckooz serviced apartments.1
