The QVB was originally built as the Queen Victoria Market and replaced an existing produce market. The building was designed by city architect George McRae and constructed between 1893 and 1898. This outstanding example of Byzantine architecture occupies an entire city block. Building is 30 metres wide by 190 metres long. The QVB’s soaring central dome boasts translucent stained-glass clad in copper on the outside, and the shopping area takes up several balconied floors linked by grand staircases. QVB is described as one of the most beautiful shopping centre in the world.
