Hyde Park Towers

Hyde Park Towers is a commercial and residential building along Elizabeth Street. The heritage listed building was built in 1913 in the Federation Free Classical architectural style, as the ironmongery for the for the Mark Foys department store opposite. It was converted into a service station and car park in 1934, known as the Hercules Motors Parking Station. When part of the building was demolished and redeveloped into a 32 storey apartment block in 1995, the street facade with the crest of the department store was retained for commercial and retail use.

  3. Oh dear. I am glad at least that they maintained the front building when the back building was built.

  4. Hello, it is a beautiful building. Enjoy your day and week ahead!

  5. Glad they kept the front. Beautiful building.

  6. Just enough red in those columns to accentuate the windows!

  7. It's a shame they couldn't do more to it than convert it into a car park.

  8. How wonderful that it survived conversion to be re-converted into something more befitting its beauty.
    Thanks for sharing.
