Commercial Union development built between 1959 and 1965 on Corporation Street. This was the first slab-and-podium in the commercial centre of the city.

The fourteen storey office tower in the style of the Pirelli tower in Milan, with tapered ends and top arcade, sits above a shopping precinct, restaurants and parking.

Whilst the tower remains having been refurbished and converted into a hotel, the precinct has since been heavily redeveloped.
