Facts

  • This was Sydney's first highrise to take advantage of the lifting of the 46m (150ft) height limit which was enforced until 1957. It dominated the city's skyline for many years.
  • The building originally had a rooftop observation deck at 106m high.
  • The AMP building snatched the "tallest in Australia title" from Melbourne's 84m/20storey Orica House (now Orica House) built in 1958.
  • It held the title as the country's tallest skyscraper until 1965, when eclipsed by the now-demolished 128m State Office Block. The AMP building was heritage listed in 1996.
