The apartment offers sustainable living – rarely needing to use air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter due to the the stone clad cavity masonry of classic pre-war architecture construction, impossible to replicate today. The stunning 9-floor sandstone and granite building is an outstanding example of classic pre-war architecture, strongly influenced by the Art Deco movement and built as a ‘no-expense-spared’ symbol of banking and investment power and influence. It’s design embodies a grace and elegance, lacking in inner city developments today.
