Facts

  • The State Office building topped out in June 1965, and became the country's tallest skyscraper. It held the title until late 1967 when eclipsed by the 170m Australia Square tower. The building was dismantled over 9 months in 1997-98 to make way for the new Renzo Piano tower Aurora Place.
  • Contained offices for the Premier of NSW, prominent ministers and a selection of State government departments. Level 8 contained a staffed apartment for the Premier of NSW.
  • Was demolished to make way for construction of Aurora Place. The demolition of this building upset many Australian architects who claimed the State Office Block was a very fine example of mid-1960s modernist architecture.
