Australian Consolidated Press Building

The former Australian Consolidated Press Building is located between Elizabeth Street and Castlereagh Street. This view of the heritage listed 12 storey office building is from Castlereagh Street, with some similarities to the nearbySt James Trust Building. The lower six levels were originally the Evening News Building, designed by Bruce Dellit at Spain & Cosh and built in 1925 in the Inter-war Commercial Palazzo architectural style. The upper six levels were designed by Harry Seidler and built in 1961.

  3. I like the unfluted columns with Ionic capitals. Makes me think of Ephesus...

  5. LOVE that super-sized pladdian design in the center. It's a lovely structure. I appreciate that the second architect maintained the rhythm of the windows in the upper floors.
