Gordon Place

Gordon Place is located between Exhibition and Spring streets, extending north from Little Bourke Street. It was named for Gordon House, situated near the intersection of Little Bourke and Spring streets. Gordon House was built as a guest-house in 1883 by politician and theatrical entrepreneur George Coppin. Designed by noted architect William Pitt, it was modelled on the Chelsea Model Lodging House in London. The building is now listed on the Victorian Heritage Register, and has been converted to a boutique hotel. Gordon Place was also home to the Gordon Chambers in 1895.
