Didn't know there was an underpass that would lead to QVB?

You can get from there to Martin Place/Macquarie St entirely undercover (actually from the next block south if you want).

Interesting building; the neighbour to the right is probably one of the oldest buildings remaining on Broadway and the empty space to the left is over a storm water drain that services the area on the other side of Broadway. Prior to demolition of many buildings and draining the land of this side of Broadway down to the water it was notoriously unhealthy and filthy. Mountain Street just to the left is named after one of the council officers who took part in this work.

That would be a great candidate for the Herald-Wales treatment (now the Radisson down on Pitt Street). Add a few floors (if possible) in the same style, with the tower placed atop the new floors.

Yuh I know. Doesn't mean they couldn't extend vertically, unless there are insurmountable/unfeasible reasons why they can't.
