The Park Regis City Centre Hotel is located on the corner of Park Street and Castlereagh Street. It was built in 1968 and was once one of the tallest buildings in Sydney. I was only able to take a photo from this angle after buildings on the opposite corner were recently demolished to build a station for the new Sydney Metro railway line. Victoria Towers is the 38 storey apartment building on the left, located along Castlereagh Street, it was built in 1997 above the Castlereagh Club, formerly the Catholic Club.
