The Block 2016 Series Name Possibilities?

Yesterday was my first visit to The Block 2016. Trust me, this will be the greatest Block EVER. The building is absolutely massive. As for Heritage plans they will just restore the building and remain to the exact same colour. But there was 1 thing that was not made clear. The series name? In this post we will discuss possible theories for series names.

The Block Soap Factory

As you may know, when this building was built, its purpose was a soap and candle factory. It distributed iconic products like 'Solvol' and many other products.

The producers may choose to stick to its original 1920's purpose. This would be the most plausible name.

The Block Port Melbourne 

This time, The Block has ditched South Yarra and Prahran for there series. This was awaited by many as everyone was interested to see a building that had a different purpose renovated. Right now they are in Port Melbourne. These apartments will sell for a high price tag. The residential development happening around it will consist of 300 units. They all sold within 2 days for $330,00-$750,00. That could be what all the contestants were wanting to hear as it could mean there is lots of interest in Port Melbourne.

The Block Heritage Listed

Before the producers bought this building it was owned by property magnate, Harry Stamoulis. He bought the building of $25million. When he bought it, it wasn't Heritage. As it became Heritage, it soon began to lose its value and then was sold for $5mil to The Block producers. It still is heritage listed. This year the only thing that will be done to the building is restoration and repainting the building. It will be painted the same colour as before and I'm guessing that they will remove the timber that boards up the windows.


Which do you think it could be?

The Block 2016 in Greville Street Prahran!!

Recently on Frank Valentic's  [Buyers Advocate on The Block] Twitter he featured a chat about The Block. He mentioned his company, Advantage Property Consulting, his outcome on The Block and a general drama wrap. Featured in his drama wrap was talk about Whitney and Andy's break up, Suzi's prize money controversy and last but not least 2016 season of The Block.  "There are rumours of The Block buying a property in Greville Street, Prahran." Funnily enough he is the only one that has heard this rumour. Given that he is a featured Buyers Advocate and Block Insider, I believe that it is safe to say that THE BLOCK IS GOING TO GREVILLE STREET!!!

The Block Season 11 is titled The Blocktagon

Although rumours of the season being titled otherwise it has now been proven by me that it is now titled The Blocktagon. Jamie Platt for some unknown reasons has this ( Below) up on their website. Please discuss your thought on the title in the forum. I have also found a LinkedIn Account stating they are one of the editors.


Future of The Block

Yesterday marked The Block 2016 Open for Inspections! It's estimated that 10,000 people turned up to view the apartments this year. That's almost double of last year. Among the many fans waiting to view the apartments, filming was being conducted. Whether that be filming for the Grand Finale, or the Open for Inspections episode. Scott Cam was on the rooftop filming his lines for the grand finale, fans stood around him waving their signs frantically in support of their favourite couple. 'In 2017, The Block is bigger and better than ever!' Scott says. Have The Block bought their site for their 2017 series?

Recently K Rock Geelong reported that a source close to The Block said that 'The Block are eyeing off Geelong for their next series.' Should these rumours be true, which building would they choose? Among K-Rock's list of aspirational sites was the Ford Factory, Point Henry and many other sites. Do you know where they have bought their next building? Do you…
