Want to live in The Block’s Soap Factory building?

Now you can! One of the apartments in the old Soap Factory building, home of The Block 2016, is on the market - and it’s a LOT cheaper than you might expect

The Block Contestants 2016 Soap Factory The Block 2016 team on auction day which saw Will and Karlie win, and take home a whopping $815,000 profit.

It was the setting for one epic renovating battle in 2016. Now, an apartment in the former Soap Factory building, at 164 Ingles St Port Melbourne, is on the market.
Apartment 7 was one of the spaces not worked on by any of the contestants two years ago and was just a shell when the show ceased production. It was eventually purchased by two builders from Liefting Merlo Homes, who, according to a report in news.com, spent five months transforming the space.

Because it doesn't come inclusive of furniture and extras, the price tag is a lot lower than the apartments that sold during the show, on the market for between $1.78 - $1.9 million.
This figure is WAY less than the $2.6million paid for Will and Karlie’s winning apartment - which means it may actually be in your price range!
