It’s big, it’s old, it’s beautiful, it’s from the 1920’s, it’s art deco and it could be the new location for the next season of The Block.
Channel 9 has reportedly just bought an old art deco factory in Melbourne from a rich man, Harry Stamoulis for $5 million.
CommercialRealEstate say that it’s believed the producer’s from the renovation show have nabbed the heritage protected building in Port Melbourne.
The building is part of a former Symex soap factory, built in the 1920’s as an administration office. The old, rustic framework will pose many challenges for the contestant’s and producers.

CommercialRealEstate says,”Mr Stamoulis purchased the Symex site for $25 million in 2013, just days before it was rezoned for residential development by the former Liberal government under planning changes to the Fishermans Bend precinct.”
