1899, the surviving corner block of the old Rawson Market, started in 1871 by
Lockwood and Mawson and extended in 1899 by Hope and Jondine, architects of the
Technical College. Quadrant corner with Rawson Place. Gaisby Rock ashlar
elevations, one bay to Rawson Place, 3 to John Street. The corner is emphasised
by a 5-storey circular tower, the top stage consisting of a drum with 4 pairs
of Corinthian columns, the entablatures surmounted by urns and a finely balanced
masonry dome above with a cupola lantern. The tall 3-storey and attic flanking
elevations have giant Corinthian columns with block banding to base of shafts.
Shallow canted bay windows on first floor and large lunette window above segmental
portal entrance. Pedimented dormers in parapet with urns in line with columns below.
The windows are stone mullioned. Important corner site, listed in particular for
the contribution made by the tower to the townscape.
