King Street, Ashington Court

Ashington Court is a commercial building located along King Street, seen here with Sydney Tower in the distance. This heritage listed building was designed by Mansfied Bros and built in 1888 in the Victorian Free Classical architectural style. It originally known as The Daily Telegraph Building when it housed the offices of the tabloid newspaper until 1914. It was later known as Elystan Chambers and Cornelius Court.
