History of St Kilda East, VIC 3183

The East St Kilda area was first settled in the 1850s.

Smaller timber shacks were common during the early 1860s to 1870s with larger houses on the bigger subdivisions.

During the late 1870s, terraced housing began around the railway line.

Alma Park was laid out and areas surrounding the park were set aside for religious purposes, resulting in a large number of convents and chapels along Chapel Street and either side of Dandenong Road.

In the 1950s, speculative development resulted in the alteration of many of the suburb’s streetscapes. Centred around Chapel Street and to the east of the railway line, flats are now common in the area.

Recent development of the suburbs, rising land values and excellent access to public transport has seen recent gentrification in the area. Modern infill medium density apartments are being built on many blocks with the Carlisle Street area designated an activity centre under the Melbourne 2030 planning scheme.
