Martin Place, Colonial State Bank

The Colonial State Bank building is located along Martin Place between Elizabeth Sreet and Phillip Street. It was built in 1986 in the post modern architectural style as the headquarters of the NSW State Bank, later taken over by Colonial in 1996 to form the Colonial State Bank, ubtil itself was taken over in 2000 by the Commonwealth Bank of Australia. This 36-storey tower sits on a 2-storey atrium with the former banking chamber now containing the Sydney newsdesk of the Seven Network's Sydney-based Seven News. The top of the Capita Centre in nearby Castlereagh Street can be seen in the reflection.
