ANZ Gothic Bank
382-392 Collins Street, Melbourne 3000.
- Constructed in 1883-7.
- Designed by William Wardell.
- Listed on the Victorian Heritage Register (no. H0034).
Built for the English, Scottish and Australian Bank (now known as the Australia & New Zealand Bank), this impressive banking building on the corner of Collins and Queen Streets is an excellent example of commerical gothic.
The building contains a banking chamber which is still in use by the ANZ Bank. Upstairs is a manager's residence which remains in excellent condition. Downstairs, the banking chamber with its ornately decorated ceiling is a true architectual treasure.
The ANZ Gothic Bank - as it is now known - has been skillfully integrated into the neighbouring Melbourne Safe Deposit and Stock Exchange buildings.
