This building could provide more public use and historic events to raise funds for its preservation. Seeing the upper floors would be nice. Haigh's chocolates at street level seems to be the meeting place for many folk.....

For Adelaideans the most popular meeting place was and still is, Beehive corner. On the corner of the mall and King William Street. I recall the Bee finally being added around 20 years ago. This corner of the mall is well known for the two Chocolatiers opposite each other - Haighs and Charlesworths. Both worth a visit on their own.

Progress plays an important role in all our lives but then again - so does retaining significant items from our past. Adelaide may be growing but they have retained historic buildings with unique architecture (like the Beehive Building) just as proudly as the modern buildings alongside. Good for you Adelaide.

The main attraction in this uniquely designed building is Haigh's Chocolate shop on the ground floor. The shop is very popular with both locals and visitors alike.

The Beehive building is simply stunning. Like a very few builings in our major cities and regional towns around the country, this is a building that really matters. It is amazing. I have the pleasure (?) of waiting at the Rundle Mall tram stop often and it is a real pleasure because I haven't yet grown tired of looking at... More

A beautiful building with the added benefit of having Haigh's Chocolate located in the shop. Well worth a visit to see the architecture and taste the chocolate!
