This clock tower and globe lamp are part of the former Grace Brothers department store along Broadway, in the inner city suburb of Ultimo. It was built in the Federation Queen Anne architectural style as part of the flagship building of the department store and matching the original building across the road, completed in 1904. Grace Bros vacated the Broadway store in 1992 and these buildings were restored and redeveloped in 1998. This building became student accommodation for the nearby University of Sydney. Broadway is the name of the road that runs from Railway Square to the University of Sydney and is the border between the suburbs of Ultimo and Chippendale, Glebe and Camperdown.
