Baldwin’s Omega was a popular venue in its heyday.

During its heyday, the Omega was constantly busy building a reputation not only for the quality of its food, but also for its ability to ensure diners had a lively night out at the many events it hosted.

But times have changed and they have been hit by the decline in office parties as businesses cut back on entertainment. Mr Baldwin died in his sleep at his home in Dore last year, aged 80.

The site now houses a new subdivision.

Images were recently revealed showing the Chelsea Heights show home, which is in the Berkeley Place block of the development on Brincliffe Hill, Brincliffe.

This is Berkeley Place on the site of former Baldwin’s Omega on Brincliffe Hill, Brincliffe.

It is marketed by Blenheim Park Estates, which states that there are 21 luxury two and three bedroom apartments in the Berkeley Place and Strathmore Place buildings.
