Towbar Installer Fitzroy North

The suburb of Fitzroy North is 4 kilometres northeast of Melbourne’s Central Business District. It’s an inner-city suburb under the local government area of the cities of Yarra and Moreland. Its population is more or less than 12,000.

Fitzroy North, sometimes called North Fitzroy in reference to its southern neighbor, is known for its broad avenues. It features surviving Victorian and Edwardian era terraced houses, and the Edinburgh Gardens. The suburb is also noted for a huge inner-city park that was once home to the Fitzroy Football Club.

Fitzroy North  and Clifton Hill share a postcode and a similar neighborhood vibe. Both are government subdivisions built on elevated ground and designed by Clement Hodgkinson in the 1870s. They differ from the older small and packed private developments in Fitzroy and Collingwood’s lower lying districts to the south.

The suburb is theoretically connected to Fitzroy, yet the two are as distinct as any inner-city district. The breadth of Alexandra Parade, formerly Reilly Street, has always divided them. With the construction of the Eastern Freeway in the 1970s, the volume of traffic became an overpowering barrier. Fitzroy North has its own personality, with less commercial activity, larger, calmer, and leafier streets.  A clear separation to the east is afforded by the green Merri Creek corridor.

The majority of Fitzroy North is made up of single and double storey Victorian and Edwardian buildings. Its neighbourhood features a mix of semi-attached and freestanding residences on small to moderately large blocks. Heritage controls safeguard a large portion of the suburb. Fitzroy North has retained its original character and has seen significantly less industrial and commercial expansion than its southern counterpart.

Fitzroy North also includes numerous unique apartment complexes, the most of which were constructed within the last 15 years. Another is a reconstruction of the ancient Fire Station on St Georges Road at Park Street. It also has a back expansion that looks like three concrete grain silos.

Brunswick Street, St Georges Road, and the northern half of Queens Parade are the primary commercial thoroughfares in Fitzroy North. Piedimontes is a well-known independent grocery at St Georges Road and Scotchmer Street, famed for its continental delicacies.
