“Another grand old lady”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

It is hard to believe that there was talk of demolition before the building was re-developed, after severe deterioration and neglect, and given a new life in 1986. While rather odd in its architecture, its rounded windows looking a Romanesque church, the building houses levels of upmarket shops and boutiques/kiosks; eateries of many kinds and is also part of an underground commuter and connection system which includes Town Hall Station. On a wet day it helps minimise outdoor walking in the general precinct.

“Old World Style Ornate Shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

I was only here briefly so I didn't get to look for any bargains. The subway leaves you off very close to the Queen Victoria Building. Beautiful, ornate, old world style shopping with a couple floors of shops to browse. I have pictures attached.
