MLC Centre

The MLC Centre, one of the tallest skyscrapers in Sydney, rises to 67 floors above Castlereagh Street between Martin Place and King Street. It contains an office tower, a retail precinct and the Theatre Royal. The MLC Centre was Sydney's tallest office building from 1977 to 1992. Sydney Tower has been the tallest structure in Sydney since it was built in 1981. The next tallest skyscrapers in Sydney, in order of height, are Chifley Tower 1992, Citigroup Centre 2000, Deutsche Bank Place 2005, World Tower 2004 and MLC Centre 1977.

  9. Julie, Sydney Tower has been the tallest structure since it was built in 1981 but there are four taller office towers now with the tallest being Chifley Tower. I'll add the list of taller ones to my post.

  38. very impressive picture. Makes me think of Superman. I love Superman by the way. hahah

  39. This is actually difficult to photograph. What does one do? By keeping the sky a uniform mass of colour, the building has become even more powerful. It would then be interesting to photograph it in fog, with the top of the building disappearing. This will give you material for many photos.

  47. What a gorgeous deep blue sky! The MLC Cenre is a very unique building. MLC is also the abbreviation for the church we go to, Mother Lode Church. Lots of things are named "mother lode" around these parts because it's where the "mother lode" of gold was first discovered in the foothills of California in 1848.
