History of the Downing Centre

Video Transcript

This beautiful building the Downing Centre Court Complex.

It was built in 1908, and traded as a department store until 1980 when it was taken over by Grace Brothers, who traded here until 1983.

It was made into a court complex in 1985, and in 1991 was named the Downing Centre after the former attorney general administer of justice Rich Downing.

It comprises seven levels of courts.

The district courts are from levels lower ground to level three and the local courts are level four and level five.

Our office is Sydney Criminal Lawyers® and is located here across the road from the Downing Centre; 267 Castlereagh Street Sydney.

If you’re coming here by car we offer free visitor parking.

Alternatively if you travel by public transport Museum station is a short distance from the Downing Centre and just a little distance down the road is Town Hall station.

So this is the Downing Centre Court Complex.

It’s an important building because it is entered into the register of the National Estate.

So it’s a culturally significant building, a lot of cases are run through the Downing Centre Courts.

The cases range from drink driving, AVOs, and so on, up until district court trials for serious crime.

That’s the Downing Centre Court Complex.
