Shopping in Sydney – Queen Victoria Building

Queen victoria building consolidate my super free Opening in 1898, the Queen Vic is so much more than just a building. Dramatic Roman inspired architecture was chosen for the building which houses coffee shops, warehouses and a concert hall. The mayor at the time Matthew Harris made a speech on it's opening. A less costly building would have provided ample market accommodation. But it would have been short-sighted to have only studied the present to the exclusion of that great future which far-seeing men will agree will be almost infinite in possibilities. The concert hall turned into a library and offices became housing. [PUNIQGOOGLESNIPMIX-1

This outstanding example of Byzantine architecture, which occupies an entire city block - bounded by George, Market, York and Druitt Streets - was completed in 1898 to replace the original Sydney Markets. Later, it accommodated a concert hall, which eventually became the city library. The building was remodelled in the 1930s and used for different purposes, including municipal offices. In 1984 it was completely refurbished as a shopping centre, with more than 200 shops. The renovations, by the Malaysian company Ipoh Garden Berhad, were highly imaginative and thoughtful.

The markets Governor Lachlan Macquarie moved the produce markets from The Rocks to the present site of the Queen Victoria Building in 1810 because of its proximity to Darling Harbour. Most of the produce for the market was transported to Sydney by sea and unloaded at the Market Wharf on the eastern shores of Darling Harbour, roughly where Pyrmont Bridge is now. Market Street, which runs along the northern perimeter of the former markets site, follows the route from the Market Wharf to the market place. The markets were also well sited for the road west to the fertile farming districts around Parramatta, and the Hawkesbury beyond. Macquarie oversaw the upgrading of Parramatta Road early in his governorship, which assisted the transport of market produce by road.
