Australian Provincial Asssurance Building

Australian Provincial Asssurance Building
Construction of the Australian Provincial Asssurance Building at 53-63 Martin Place in the Sydney CBD began in early June 1936 by Kell and Rigby builders following the calling of tenders in February the same year.

The building was designed by the architect David W. King who occupied a suite in the building for over thirty years and was largely responsible for ongoing maintenance and alterations to the building during this time.

A more detailed description of the building can be found following the "source" link below.
