The Plaza by onewing

The Plaza

This building overlooking Newcastle is now Rydges Hotel formerly Crowne Plaza.

This end of the city once housed railway sheds, marine buildings, grain sheds and fishing cottages etc.

I can see why this part of town had to be replaced with new buildings, as some were in quite a bad way to start with but after the 1989 earthquake lots of the buildings were demolished because they were in such a bad state of repair.
Looks lovely, and undoubtedly a little pricey!

I have to admit that I do love the old buildings in Newcastle, but this part of town was in need of repair after the 1989 earthquake so I do like the crispness of the new buildings.
