#TheParamount #bourkestreet view of east side from russell st. Such a perfect rendition of 80s #postmodernism though dating from 1996. Sort of #artdecorevival #mirrorglass verticals. Im getting to like it, though on this side an ugly gap in the street was created for the carpark entry. Built by Malaysian interests, architect possibly Christopher Ng. At the rear there’s the #facade of a 1907 warehouse on #littlebourkestreet. The site was a large carpark in the 70s with a cinema centre later plonked on top, a #boglebanfield design, developed by Banfield himself, the carpark king of Melbourne in the 60s and 70s till he went bankrupt in 76.
