Mascot, bank

The former National Bank of Australasia on the corner of Botany Road and Coward Street, in the eastern suburb of Mascot. It is now home to law firm Pryor Tzannes & Wallis Solicitors & Notaries.


  1. It gives me a feel that this is a library

  2. A corner building, with impressive architecture, must have been a very appealing location for the bank, or for a classy pub or indeed a law firm.

  3. Some banks are so beautiful. They also can be repurposed as this bank was.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. ☺

  4. Great and impressive and love it going around the corner of the street.
    Thanks so much for participating and sharing at SSPS 292. See you again next week!
    Do not forget to come and also participate at #WW Wednesday to Saturday (words are also welcome). Hope to see you

  5. It is indeed an impressive building. We live nearby and walk past it regularly.

    Unfortunately there are plans to amend the zoning in the area to allow high-density developments and increase permissible height from 14m to 28m. With this, they propose to redevelop the public housing site directly opposite the old bank and replace with approx 150 units of varying heights (3, 4, 6 and 8 storeys). The 8 storeys will be on the Botany Rd side directly opposite the old bank and on Coward St directly opposite Memorial Park.

    If approved it will set a precedence for many other similar developments in the area. We already have this at Mascot Station. We don't need more.

    The development also includes a potential closure of the Ambulance Station meaning longer ambulance response times for residents of Mascot and nearby areas who will need to rely on other stations such as Randwick, Marrickville and Maroubra.

    If you want to preserve our heritage items such as the old bank and protect vital services and safety of our neighbourhood, please have your say by 5pm Thu 8th Feb 2024:
