Blending old with new, style and culture, the central business district offers it all. Founded in 1804 when Lt-Governor Collins moved the settlement from Ris- don to Sullivan's Cove, Hobart began its days as a whaling and ship-building hub. Many Georgian sandstone buildings remain in perfect condition today. Nestled in between Mount Wellington and the River Derwent, the area has a maritime feel and is famous its seafood. The vast majority (76.7 per cent) of CBD residents is made up of childless couples, lone households and group households. Families with children make up only 18 per cent of the population. Houses vary from the heritage-listed to the luxurious multi-million dollar apart- ment to the modern townhouse. 321 APARTMENT living does not get much more convenient or sleek than this three-bedroom unit in Collins St. Located in the 1930s T&G building, The Cathedral is a fourth-floor boutique apartment that combines Art Deco with 21st century.
