St James Trust Building

St James Trust Building is located between Elizabeth Street and Castlereagh Street. This view of the heritage listed 12 storey office building is from Castlereagh Street. It was formerly known as the Manchester Unity Building, designed by John P. Tate & Young and built in 1924 in the Inter-war Commercial Palazzo architectural style. The building was commissioned as the headquarters of the Manchester Unity of Oddfellows, a society founded on Masonic principles that acted as an insurance company for its members. It was extensively refurbished in 1983 and the facade was restored in 1998.

  1. You always wonder why are the balconies there and not everywhere or just not at all. Now we know where the import people are in the building.

  2. It looks quite high for such an old building, at least to European standards !

  3. I like this building a lot, from the color yellow to the arches.

    Worth a Thousand Words

  4. A nice example of old Sydney CBD. Looks like it was a nice day too.
