Pitt Street, Sugar House

This heritage listed building was built on the site of Sydney's first sugar exchange, on the corner of Pitt Street and King Street. It was built in 1879 in the Victorian Italianate style as a hotel for Sydney businessman, William Mears. It was first managed by Edward Trickett, a world champion sculler, and known as "Trickett's Hotel", later renamed "Kings Hotel". It was adapted to commercial use after its closure and renamed "Sugar House" with various tenants until it became a Ralph Lauren boutique in 2023. It spans over four floors with a private rooftop and has been lit up in green and red for Christmas.
