The Heidelberg Shopping Centre, known as "Burgundy Street" has recently been revived. It had become rundown in the 1980s, but a new supermarket, and many trendy cafes have made the area much more liveable; as a result, house prices have increased dramatically. "Burgundy Street" is now known as Heidelberg Central Shopping Precinct and has over 230 retail/commercial and professional businesses. Over $1 million has been spent over the last 7 years to upgrade the infrastructure of the Precinct.
The Laneway Mural was painted by a group of artists in 2008 (see photo #11) and draws its material from many famous 19th century Australian paintings of artists belonging to the Heidelberg School (see photo #3). The lane runs perpendicular to Burgundy St and leads to a parking lot.
