QVB

Recommended Posts

The QVB was built between 1893-98 for the purpose of being a market place. It was restored in the 1980s to become an ornate shopping complex. This American Romanesque building covers the length of a city block.

It was threatened with demolition in the 1970s with the idea of building a multi-storey car park.

They were threatening to demolish that building for a multi-story parking garage?! It's good that they didn't build it, because that's a beautiful building, and it would've been a shame to loose it.
