Upper Heidelberg Road Commercial Centre
Upper Heidelberg Road is the suburb's centre and the location of the former Heidelberg Town Hall, now known as The Centre Ivanhoe. The town hall is a classic 'art-deco' building on top of a hill, with a green neon clockface on a tower. Due to historical considerations, the town hall continues to host Banyule City Council meetings notwithstanding their main offices moving to Greensborough in 2017.
The suburb hosts two elite private schools; Ivanhoe Grammar School, established in 1915 and Ivanhoe Girls' Grammar School. It is also home to one of Victoria's oldest state schools, Ivanhoe Primary School, established in 1853. The Victorian State Government, through the Department of Education, closed Bellfield Primary School at 229 Banksia Street, Ivanhoe and sold the site to Banyule City Council in August 2013. The housing development by Stockland was built on the site.
